PRAYEKS FOE USE IN AUXILIARY MEETINGS 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, 
our work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so 
thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we 
may pray fervently, labour diligently and give liberally to 
make Him known to all nations as their God and Saviour. We 
ask this for His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advance- 
ment of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we 
pray Thee, with such love and faith that we may be willing to 
go unto the uttermost part of the earth in answer to Thy call. 

This, and all things which are for Thy glory, we ask for 
Christ's sake. Amen. 

For Noon-Tide, Daily 

Lord of the Harvest, send forth men full of faith and of the 
Holy Ghost as labourers into Thy harvest; through Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

Daily Prayer 

O God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee; mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Bible Study Classes 

O God, our Father, Who of Thy Goodness hath given us a 
Bible to be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, help us, 
we beseech Thee, to study this Bible for the sole purpose of 
learning Thy Will concerning us. Help us to understand and 
remember what we study, and help us to be obedient to Thy 
Teaching for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth 
more labourers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special 

ID 

to 



Forty-first Annual Report 



grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the 
field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose 
the hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast 
given to them. Accept from grateful hearts, our United Thank 
Offering of prayer and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to 
the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Foe Use Before and at the Time of the Election of 
Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can 
enable us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the 
dignity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as 
our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; 
to those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the 
discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Social Service 

Almighty God, Who hast created man in Thine own image : 
grant us grace to contend fearlessly against evil, and to make 
no peace with oppression ; and, that we may reverently use our 
freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice 
among men and nations, to the glory of Thy Holy Name — 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

IMPORTANT NOTES 

1. See Constitution and By-Laws on pages 39-42. 

2. See pages 5-7 for names and addresses of new officers and 
chairmen of committees. 

3. The Peast of the Purification is the annual Corporate 
Communion day; and the eves of the Feasts of St. Andrew, 
the Epiphany, the Annunciation and the Transfiguration are 
the special intercessory days for the Diocese. Please observe 
these days. 

4. The special prayer for use before and at the time of the 
election of officers may be found on page 4. 

5. Note carefully Article IX of Constitution. 

6. Article YII of the Constitution reads in part, "A branch 
to have voting privileges must have paid the Central Fund." 

7. Article VIII, Section 3, reads in part, "From the amount 
contributed, according to this scale, the Treasurer shall turn 
over one-half to the Nation-wide Campaign Fund," this amount 
to be distributed according to the needs as seen by the Presiding 
Bishop and Council. Inasmuch as this organization is Auxili- 
ary to the Presiding Bishop and Council, this money will go to 
the general fund, therefore, any amount a branch may wish 
to go for diocesan objects should be designated from the re- 
maining half of the branch's contribution. 

8. Send all money, except the United Thank Offering, to 
Mrs. C. M. Parks, Tarboro, Treasurer. Books close for the 
year December 31, 1923. 

9. Mrs. Parks was elected Treasurer in annual meeting, 
Charlotte, 1922. 

10. Note carefully announcement of districts. 

11. Article VIII of the Constitution explains the letter 
placed by most branches in the list of parish branches and their 



FoRTY-FIEST ANNUAL RePOKT 



officers. Where there is no letter the branch either did not enter 
the scale, which every branch should feel free to do or not do as 
seems best to its members, (a surprisingly large number, how- 
ever, did follow the new plan) or it did not divide its gifts in 
a way to approach anywhere near the place in the scale the 
amount given entitled it. (At least half must go to the Gen- 
eral Nation-wide Campaign Fund.) It seems fairer to place 
no letter by a branch in a case where $600, for instance, had 
been given, less than $250, however, going undesignated, because 
if a letter had been used it would have been C. Whereas if 
$300 or more of this $600 had been left undesignated — given to 
the General Nation-wide Campaign Fund — the branch's letter 
would have been A. 

FORM OF BEQUEST 

I give, devise, and bequeath to the Domestic and Foreign 
Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the 

United States of America, for the use of the Society, $ 

If it is desired that the bequest should be applied to some par- 
ticular department of the work, there should be substituted for 
the words, "For the Use of the Society," the words "For Domes- 
tic Missions," or "For Foreign Missions," or "For Work 
Among the Indians," or "For Work ibnong Colored People," 
or "For Work in Africa," "For Work in China," etc.

REPORT OF PRESIDENT 

It is with a real pleasure, my dear friends and co-workers, 
that I welcome you to the annual meeting of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary. This gathering together of those bound by mutual ties 
of interest and service to review work done, to take council for 
the future, to offer united prayer and praise to Him in whom 
we live, move and have our being, should bring to us as indi- 
viduals and branches a broader vision, a new birth of inspiration 
and consecration and a deeper sense of the obligations and op- 
portunities that are calling to us as Christian women today. 

In the report of your officers and chairmen you will learn of 
the work that has been done and the plans and purposes of the 
various districts, departments and committees. It has been my 
pleasure to visit a number of branches and to attend all of the 
district meetings except Rowan. I have sent quarterly letters to 
the branches and have called attention to the work of the depart- 
ments and committees, have emphasized our Auxiliary pledge 
renewed at Portland, called for a united prayer service for help 
for the Near East, Bishop Rowe's foundation fund, our Aux- 
iliary specials, the Ramsaur Memorial and the fund for send- 
ing representatives to the summer conferences. There has been 
much during the past year in which we have failed. Some 
things we have accomplished. Let us not be discouraged that 
the things we have accomplished seem small but "forgetting 
those things that are behind, let us press forward to the mark 
of our high calling in Christ Jesus." And let us remember 
always that we are His and all that we have and are should be 
used in His service. 

At Portland we pledged renewed efforts to maintain a high 
moral standard in our homes and in society and particularly in 



14 Forty-first Annual Report 

such practical directions as prison reform, adequate care for 
disabled veterans, better laws for women and children, Christian 
inter-racial relations and Christian unity. One of the best ways 
in which we can maintain this high standard is through the 
care and training of our children, through study and reading 
the Bible, through prayer and by example and precept showing 
forth those things which are pure and lovely and of good report. 
Especially would I urge keeping in touch with our committee 
on the offering of life, praying always that we and ours may be 
acceptable in His sight and used in His service. As an Auxili- 
ary we are asked to think of Christian social service not merely 
as visiting the sick or prisoners, the sending of flowers or clothes 
and magazines but as a constructive plan for making a better 
citizenship, for removing the causes leading to crime, poverty, 
disease and ignorance and helping others to help themselves. 
In order that we more effectively work for these things I recom- 
mend that the Woman's Auxiliary have a representative on the 
Legislative Council for Women. Our prisoners call to us, our 
inter-racial relations are a reproach to our profession as Chris- 
tians and our treatment of our returned soldiers is without 
excuse. In our last Spirit of Missions we read these words: 

Have the people become uninterested in the men who six years 
ago held all their thoughts? If the people are interested and are 
grateful they will make the following demands: 

That the men receive proper vocational training. 

That adequate hospitals be built at once. 

That they receive adequate and prompt compensation for 
physical disability due to service. 

That the Veterans' Bureau be taken out of politics. 

That the employees of the Bureau be ex-service men, and that 
the women employed shall be wives of men killed or disabled. 

And one of the most important things yet to be done is to 
demand that expert medical and surgical advice be used for our 
disabled veterans. The whole state of affairs in regard to these 
veterans is a public disgrace and a national dishonor. 

What shall we do about this? I would suggest that each one 
of us who is entitled to do so should join the American Legion. 
Let us do our part to help in any way that we may these heroes 
of ours. It was at the instance of our own Claudia Hunter that 



The Woman's Auxiliary 15 

this has been emphasized as a part of our National work, and 
it will be our pleasure to help in any way possible to remedy 
the conditions which exist. 

The organization of our districts has been delayed but all is 
now in good shape and I am sure that during the next year we 
will begin to see results from this excellent plan. Especially 
would I suggest a co mmi ttee in each of these districts to bring 
about closer touch with and a more active participation in the 
work by isolated branches and individuals. 

Our educational program promised to be both interesting and 
instructive. It is up to us to help make it effective throughout 
the diocese. I would urge individuals and branches to subscribe 
to and read carefully the Carolina Churchman and the Spirit of 
Missions and a hearty co-operation with our Educational Secre- 
tary in the forward-looking plans she has outlined, will bring 
stimulated interest and more effective service. 

Our Box Work has taken on a renewed interest and usefulness. 
According to the laws of the Medes and Persians as construed 
through our constitution, we must choose this year another 
vice-president who is also secretary of the Box Work. Our out- 
going vice-president has meant much to the work. We shall 
miss her splendid ability and great interest and I bespeak for 
her successor the loyal and enthusiastic co-operation which you 
have given her. We must also choose this year a United Thank 
Offering custodian. Mrs. Cooper, during the years in which 
we have sent the Thank Offering, has come to be a very real 
part of the work. Her faithful energy and enthusiasm have 
brought to this work a new meaning. Let this enthusiasm con- 
tinually grow and may our new custodian have from us hearty 
and helpful assistance. Let us remember that the blue box 
receives the widow's mite but that does not mean it is for mites 
only, for "to whom much is given of the same shall much be 
required." I ask your prayers that we may choose for our 
officers those whom He would have do His work. 

Our committee on work with colored women must be enlarged 
and I urge all branches to co-operate with these women in the 
work they are trying to do. We will wish to enlarge our Com- 
mission on the Church Service League and to give to Mrs. Way 



16 Forty-first Annual Report 

our loyal co-operation in helping to develop this work in our 
diocese. Let us not forget that the Church Periodical Club 
needs our help. Greater than any work that we have undertaken 
in any other field is the work amongst our own children, more 
important than the work in any field because the work of all 
the future depends on them, and this work we have neglected. 
In accordance with the action of the National Auxiliary, let us 
appoint a commission to work with the Church School Service 
League, and as we love God and love our children, let us put our 
whole hearts into the work. 

One matter of great regret to us is the failure of our diocese 
and practically of the whole country to meet its nation-wide 
quota, the measure of our interest in others rather than in our- 
selves. Only 85 per cent of our quota has been paid. Virginia 
and West Virginia alone have fully paid their quota. So serious 
is this matter that Bishop Gailor has sent out a letter that 
should stir the hearts and souls of those who love and pray for 
God's work and the extension of His Kingdom. We all remem- 
ber the day of prayer, March 15th. Let us take action here 
that will be an answer to that prayer. Three women have 
pledged $100 each. Let us make our offering not less than 
$1,000 and so show our love for and interest in the work of the 
Master. 

On our pledge list we have the following items : Auxiliary 
Specials, Hoke Ramsaur Memorial at Bishop Cheshire's dis- 
posal, and fund for summer conferences. These objects should 
receive our heartiest and liberal support. I feel sure that we 
will gladly do our part. It is necessary that our young people 
attend the conferences. In their inspiration, added ability and 
zeal for service our parishes will find a rich reward. The Aux- 
iliary Specials, the training schools, one in New York for white 
women and the other for colored women, probably to be located 
at St. Augustine's, should make a very strong appeal to us. It 
is a day when trained workers are demanded in every field of 
work and the work of the Master should have the best. The 
boys' school at Pendamoi is very dear to our hearts for it is to 
be a memorial to our beloved Hoke Ranisaur. We have a big 
program ahead of us, but with God's help we can accomplish 
the things we have planned. 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 17 

Let us study diligently, work faithfully, give liberally, pray 
constantly. Let us remember that we are His representatives 
and seek by every means in our power to know Him better that 
we may more truly interpret Him. Let us study His word dili- 
gently. In it we find the record of His Life and Words. "Born 
in the East and clothed in oriental form and imagery, the Bible 
walks the ways of all the world with familiar feet and enters 
land after land to find its own everywhere. It has a word of 
peace for the time of peril, a word of comfort for the day of 
calamity, a word of light for the hour of darkness. Above the 
cradle and beside the grave its great words come to us uncalled. 
They surprise us with new meanings like springs of water 
breaking forth from the mountains beside a long-trodden path. 
They grow richer as pearls do when they are worn near the 
heart. Wo man is poor or desolate who has this treasure for his 
own. When the landscape darkens and the trembling pilgrim 
comes to the valley named of the Shadow he is not afraid to 
enter. He takes the end of the staff of Scripture in his hand. 
He says to his friend and comrade, 'Good-bye. We shall meet 
again,' and comforted by that support, he goes toward the lonely 
pass as one who walks through darkness into light." 

Let us seek Him often in the Sacrament of the Holy Com- 
munion, drawing near with faith in our hearts and receiving 
from His Grace and Power to be what He would have us be, 
and to do what He would have us do. 

"And e'en as in our hands we take 
This broken bread, this precious cup of Love, 
Thy dying testament which from above 
Thou deignest ever new and fresh to make, 
A fount of grace and life to all, 
We will remember Thee. 

Thy banquet as we go, 

Strong in the strength of this celestial meat, 

To tread the path of life with firmer feet, 

To work the works which Thou hast bid us do. 

Abide with us, O Lord, that still 

We may remember Thee." 

And in the morning watch, at the family altar, in the still 
hours of the night and in the busy hours of the day, let us lift 



18 EORTY-FIKST ANNUAL REPORT 

our hearts to Hirn in prayer and praise, listening reverently for 
and following faithfully the promptings of His Spirit, remem- 
bering that to those who go forth in His name He has said, 
"Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." 

Oh use me, Lord; use even me 

Just as Thou wilt and when and where, 

Until Thy blessed face I see — 

Thy rest, Thy joy, Thy glory shine. 

REPORT OF SECRETARY 

The annual report was prepared and mailed to the branches 
early in the fall. 

In January, report blanks were sent out and answers were 
received from 59 branches with 1,870 members. Besides the 
names of officers and number of members, the following infor- 
mation was asked which had been requested by the General Sec- 
retary for the records at the Church Missions House, and was 
given as follows : 

Number of prayer groups, 36; number of corporate com- 
munions, 74; number of Quiet Days, retreats, and other devo- 
tional meetings, 54; number of subscribers to Prayer Leaflet, 
36; number of recruits for mission field, 4; number of parish 
units of Church Service League, 14. 

All other necessary business was attended to. 

Ellen Dortch Shore, 

Secretary. 
REPORT OF SUPPLY DEPARTMENT 

As chairman of this department, familiarly known as the 
Box Work, I wish to report as the result of the 1922 work an 
increased interest, improved methods, and larger values. The 
Secretary of the Convocation of Raleigh reports in personal 
and mission boxes $1,000 in value, sent by the branches receiv- 
ing allotments from her. The Secretary of the Convocation of 
Charlotte reports an allotment sent to our mission work in 
Liberia valued at $1,000 plus the freight, $60. This is or will 
be collected and will appear in the 1923 report. The Thomp- 
son Orphanage boxes and later allotments in both Convocations 
brings the 1922 total to $2,709.81. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 19 

This is the largest, most general, and best year's work done 
by this department as a resnlt of the efforts of the secretaries. 
There has been no provision made for financing the Box Work ; 
let me snggest it be considered in making the budget of the 
future. 

As my term as vice-president ends here, this is my last report 
to the women of the Auxiliary. I am grateful to you, each and 
all, who have borne with me through the years I have added my 
mite in getting the results reported yearly. 

There is no limit to the educational work that can be done 
through this department. It is the point of contact between the 
branches and the field; each a help and an inspiration to the 
other. Don't forget to add your prayers to your work, and any 
personal touch is an added value. I pray for the blessings of 
strength, knowledge, and faith, for those who carry this work 
forward. God bless you. Mrs. W. L. Wall, 

Box Secretary. 

TRIENNIAL REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

It is true that we did not reach our goal of $11,000, but we 
did our best. "Not failure, but low aim is sin." We set a 
high mark for ourselves, and when we have conscientiously 
given all we could, we must not reproach ourselves. 

The bearer of our offering at the Triennial, Miss Claudia 
Hunter, tells us how it feels to be the chosen one to place on 
the great, golden alms-basin, the three years' results of the 
prayers, sacrifices and thanksgivings of all our women — young 
and old, rich and poor. This is what she says : 

"I did not know it would impress me so to present the offer- 
ing of the diocese. I knew I wanted the amount to be eleven 
thousand dollars as much as anybody could, but I didn't care 
who laid it on the alms-basin. When the moment came, a 
representative feeling came over me that was quite wonderful — 
all the earnest, willing, eager givers seemed to be there pressing 
close about me; really and actually sharing in that service in 
which their offering was presented to their Lord. 

"It makes me think more strongly than before, that we ought 
never to insist upon people giving to the United Thank Offering 



20 FORTY-FIKST ANNUAL REPORT 

or to any other offering. Of course our task is to help every 
woman to want to give." 

You all have heard that the total United Thank Offering was 
$670,229.28. Of this amount, North Carolina gave $9,823.32. 

The goal for 1925 has not heen fixed, but it is time now to 
begin our efforts, that we may have laid up in our Blue Boxes 
offerings worthy of our glorious cause. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE OFFERING OF LIFE 

Since the last annual meeting Hoke Ranisaur and Catharine 
Bourne have been taken away from their earthly labors. 

Sophronia Cooper and Adelaide Smith have failed to pass the 
physical examination for the mission field though both give 
promise of doing valuable work at home. And the only activity 
of your committee has been to secure funds for one delegate to 
Blue Ridge in June. 

What of the year ahead? 

When Dr. Wood was asked how the Woman's Auxiliary of the 
Diocese of North Carolina could be of the greatest help, he 
replied, "By finding men for the ministry and men for the 
mission field." And don't you feel that if Hoke Ranisaur and 
Catharine Bourne know what is going on here today they are 
caring little about what we say of their faithfulness — faithful- 
ness unto death — but that they are infinitely concerned about 
our finding others to take up the tasks they laid down? How 
can we find workers — men, and women too ? Do the young men 
and women in our parish look at us and see that we really believe 
the Church's work is the most important thing in the world? 
Our unspoken influence and the power of God released through 
our prayers is the only way your committee knows to get the 
workers whom the Christ and His saints in Paradise are ex- 
pecting. Claudia Hunter, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

During the past year the Social Service Department has 
directed its efforts mainly towards two things: Organization, 
and a study of Farm Tenancy. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 21 

In the matter of organization we can now report parishes to 
the number of about 40 organized with a chairman for Social 
Service. I would here urge that, where they have not done so, 
parishes increase their efficiency for social service by appointing 
two others to work with the chairman, thus making a committee 
on Social Service. There still remain about 30 parishes un- 
organized for social service so far as the diocese is concerned, 
and among these are some of the largest and most influential 
of our parishes. I think it more than likely that they are doing 
important work locally along social service lines, but the diocese 
needs their backing for the larger common work, and I hope 
most earnestly that at their first meeting after this convention 
they will appoint a Social Service Committee and send in to 
the Diocesan Secretary the name of its chairman. So far as 
the new districts are concerned, two are completely organized : 
Edgecombe and Orange; that is, there is not only a District 
Chairman, but every parish in the district has a chairman. 
Four others — Rowan, Guilford, Wake, and Forsyth — have a 
District Chairman, with a number, but not all, of their respect- 
ive parishes organized. The remaining four districts have not 
as yet, I believe, come into being. 

It is easy to see how helpful such organization is. The work 
of the Diocesan Secretary is not only greatly facilitated, but is 
strengthened. Letters and literature for study were transmitted 
to the individual branches through the District Chairman, whose 
weight was thus added to that of the Diocesan Secretary. 

I had the pleasure of attending three of the District meet- 
ings — Edgecombe, Granville, and Orange — but was obliged to 
decline an invitation from Rowan because of a conflicting date. 
I accepted an invitation from High Point to confer with them 
about moving pictures. 

When I come to speak of the study that we have been making 
during the year, I desire to give it all the emphasis of which 
I am capable. The two bulletins put out by the University that 
we have been so fortunate as to secure, "The Church and Land- 
less Men," and "How Farm Tenants Live," seem to me veritable 
eye-openers to a condition that demands the attention of the 
Church. I hope to hear through the reports from the parishes 



22 Forty-first Annual Report 

to be presented to the Convention that many branches have 
availed themselves of these bulletins for study. 

During the session of the General Assembly an S. O. S. call 
was sent to all branches asking them to urge their representa- 
tives to support the Mothers' Aid Bill at a critical moment in 
its career. We have great cause for thankfulness that this bill 
was enacted into law. 

Also I am glad to report that there were representatives from 
at least six parishes in attendance upon the North Carolina 
Social Service Conference held in Raleigh in January. I trust 
that we shall more and more see the importance of supporting 
this State-wide association of men and women who are studying 
the social evils that threaten the State. They need the support 
not only of an aroused and enlightened public sentiment, but 
the special backing that the Church alone can give, in order 
gradually to bring about the elimination of these evil conditions. 

In closing this report, I record with sorrow the death of 
Mrs. C. C. Taylor, of Greensboro, a member of the Social 
Service Committee whose advice was most helpful and whose 
loss is keenly felt. Emilie r HolmbSj 

Diocesan Secretary of Social Service. 

REPORT OF DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION, 1922-1923 

During the last decade Avhen a new emphasis has been laid 
upon religious education, and when all educational methods 
have advanced with unparalleled rapidity, the Church has en- 
tered upon an organized course of religious instruction to which 
none can afford to be indifferent or to remain in ignorance of its 
great program. 

Just as the new school system of the State has grown until 
it has absorbed the older type, so the Church plans have ex- 
panded and grown — as they should. Entire efficiency may still 
be lacking in both Church and State, but there is a rising tide of 
interest in educational matters that will result in better things. 

It has been said that never have the opportunities for 
woman's work been greater or more appealing and certainly 
never have women responded more readily than to the call for 
service in the Church. It may be of interest to note that the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 23 

Woman's Auxiliary already supports sixty-eight women who 
are doing educational work. 

If the North Carolina Branch could see its way to employing 
one trained worker who would visit every district at least once 
during the year, it would be an investment well worth while 
and might prove an important factor in supplying one of the 
greatest needs of the Church today — that of training, educating, 
and making more effective religious leadership, especially in 
districts that have not had the benefit and inspiration of sum- 
mer schools and conferences. 

It is the purpose of the Educational Department to hold a 
district conference each year in the Convocations of both 
Raleigh and Charlotte, when the organization of all districts is 
perfected. 

It is also hoped to adopt a policy providing a place for some 
subject of religious education on the program of each monthly 
meeting throughout the year, and not merely for the forty days 
during Lent, as it is no longer possible to keep informed of the 
wonderful work the Church is doing in this limited time. 

In the year past many classes have done good work, and new 
leaders brought forward. Several institutes and enthusiastic 
district meetings have been held with good attendance. Letters 
containing suggestions of subjects and books for study have 
been sent to every branch. 

On the whole the year's work has shown progress, and 
prospects for the future are brighter. 

REPORT OF CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The C. P. C. librarians are exceedingly modest, judging from 
their reluctance to report good works performed. To obtain 
material for a complete annual report, therefore, seems im- 
possible. 

The following, which does not embrace all work accomplished 
during 1922, has been reported : 

Current periodicals sent regularly 230 

Contributors of current periodicals 106 

Bibles and Hymnals 6 

Books 60 

Txacts 4 

Odd magazines and papers, more tban 2,057 



24 Forty-first Annual Report 

Picture cards and calendars 10 

Carols, etc. 2 

Pictures, etc. 5 

Packages of magazines 5 

One large box magazines 

Money given $25.00 

Institutions aided in Charlotte, 5, viz.: Thompson Orphanage, 
St. Peter's Hospital, Crittenden Home, Good Samaritan Hospital, 
Convict Camp. 

Holy Trinity Church Branch, Greensboro, does not report 
magazines sent regularly, but good work has been done in visit- 
ing these institutions a number of times when magazines and 
illustrated papers have been distributed: the jail, county home, 
St. Leo's Hospital, Masonic Home, District Nurses' Home, and 
Negro Hospital. Scraps were left at the county home for making 
quilts, paper and pencils at the jail and blunt pointed scissors for 
children to cut out pictures at the Orthopedic Ward. 

The greatest event in the history of the C. P. C. was the 
completion in August, 1922, of the fund for providing St. 
Paul's College, Tokyo, Japan, with an up-to-date library, the 
raising of that fund fulfilled the last requirement necessary for 
St. Paul's to become a university. The amount designated was 
$15,000, but $17,847 was raised within two years. This achieve- 
ment is indeed a cause for thanksgiving. It was a privilege to 
have had a part in that great plan. While this Diocese did not 
give as much as some, more was contributed than in a number 
of others. The work w T as truly interesting and I wish time 
would permit a brief account of the gathering of what seemed 
an unobtainable amount six months before the fund was com- 
pleted. 

Correspondents and librarians are requested to "spread this 
information as widely as possible : Discontinue all magazines 
(except subscriptions sent direct from the publishers) to Fort 
Yukon, Tanana, Stephen's Village, and Allakaket until May 
1st ; then send in all possible magazines until September 1st, 
then stop. But continue sending to all other Alaskan points 
as usual." 

Archdeacon Drane writes that these places receive mail dur- 
ing the winter season by dog sled which limits the amount 
carried and sometimes our magazines have gone forward to the 
exclusion of more important parcel post packages. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 25 

During the next 3 years we are asked to work for the medical 
library at St. Luke's International Hospital, Tokyo; Boone, 
Wuchang; and St. John's, Shanghai. 

The C. P. C, it has been claimed, represents the intellectual 
side of the Church. It offers every one an opportunity to serve 
in all departments of the Church's work. While it is regarded 
as the greatest blessing to the isolated inhabitants of ice-bound 
AJaska, it proves even more helpful to the sojourners in the 
depressing tropical jungles. Let us remember this and never 
destroy our magazines, but place them in the hands of those who 
can use them for others. 

Again I beg that you will use faithfully the C. P. C. prayer. 

Mary Hilxiard Hinton, 
Correspondent 17, C. P. C.

our living Lord, and that the Diocesan Secretary send a copy of 
this resolution to every branch secretary in the Diocese.

to work with colored church women.

Resolved, That the Auxiliary tender to the Senior Branch of 
the Auxiliary of Christ Church, Raleigh, its warmest thanks and 
deep appreciation for what this meeting in Christ Church parish 
has meant spiritually, feeling that every delegate will go home 
greatly enriched by the association with the women of this his- 
toric parish.

PRAYERS FOR USE IN AUXILIARY MEETINGS 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, 
our work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so 
thankful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we 
may pray fervently, labour diligently, and give liberally to 
make Him known to all nations as their God and Saviour. We 
ask this for His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advance- 
ment of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we 
pray Thee, with such love and faith that we may be willing to 
go unto the uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. 

This, and all things which are for Thy glory, we ask for 
Christ's sake. Amen. 

For Noontide, Daily 

Lord of the Harvest, send forth men full of faith and of the 
Holy Ghost as labourers into Thy harvest; through Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved ; through Thy merits and mercies, 
who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, 
ever One God, world without end. Amen. 

Daily Prayer 

God, for as much as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Bible Study Classes 

O God, our Father, Who of Thy Goodness hath given us a 
Bible to be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, help us, 



The Woman's Auxiliary 



we beseech Thee, to study this Bible for the sole purpose of 
learning Thy Will concerning us. Help us to understand and 
remember what we study, and help us to be obedient to Thy 
teaching for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth 
more labourers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special 
grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the 
field, and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose 
the hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast 
given to them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank 
Offering of prayer and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to 
the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of 
Officers 

Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can 
enable us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the 
dignity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as 
our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; 
to those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the 
discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Social Service 

Almighty God, Who hast created man in Thine own image: 
grant us grace to contend fearlessly against evil, and to make 
no peace with oppression; and, that we may reverently use our 
freedom, help us to employ it in the maintenance of justice 
among men and nations, to the glory of Thy Holy Name — 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Personal Use 

my Christ, forgive me that in my selfish life I have for- 
gotten my brothers and sisters all over the world. Teach me 



FoKTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



to be consistent, to be true, to practice what I believe. Help 
me to be a brother to all men, and never to suffer anything to 
break the bonds which Thou hast created by birth and by re- 
demption. Let me hear their cries and pray for them, as by 
the products of their toil they are daily brought near to me; 
let me not eat and wear and enjoy, and yet forget ! Bless all 
men, I beseech Thee, and may they love Thee, and serve Thee, 
and at last behold with joy Thy coming. So shall we reign 
with Thee, one people, one flock, one Shepherd, forever. Amen.

IMPORTANT NOTES 

1. See Constitution and By-Laws on pages 50-53. 

2. See pages 5-7 for names and addresses of new officers and 
chairmen of committees. 

3. The Feast of the Purification is the annual Corporate 
Communion day, and the eves of the Feasts of St. Andrew, 
the Epiphany, the Annunciation and the Transfiguration are 
the special intercessory days for the Diocese. Please observe 
these days. 

4. The special prayer for use before and at the time of the 
election of officers may be found on page 3. 

5. Note carefully Article IX of Constitution. 

6. Article VII of the Constitution reads in part, "A branch 
to have voting privileges must have paid the Central Fund." 

7. Article VIII, Section 3, reads in part, "From the amount 
contributed, according to this scale, the Treasurer shall turn 
over one-half to the Nation-wide Campaign Fund," this amount 
to be distributed according to the needs as seen by the Presiding 
Bishop and Council. Inasmuch as this organization is Auxil- 
iary to the Presiding Bishop and Council, this money will go to 
the general fund, therefore any amount a branch may wish 
to go for diocesan objects should be designated from the re- 
maining half of the branch's contribution. 

8. Send all money, except the United Thank Offering, to 
Mrs. C. M. Parks, Tarboro, Treasurer. Books close for the 
year December 31, 1924. 

9. Note carefully announcement of districts. 

10. Article VIII of the Constitution explains the letter 
placed by most branches in the list of parish branches and their 
officers. Where there is no letter the branch either did not enter 
the scale, which every branch should feel free to do or not do as 
seems best to its members (a surprisingly large number, how- 
ever, did follow the new plan), or it did not divide its gifts in 
a way to approach anywhere near the place in the scale the 
amount given entitled it. (At least half must go to the Gen- 
eral Nation-wide Campaign Fund.) It seems fairer to place 
no letter by a branch in a case where $600, for instance, had 



The Woman's Auxiliary 



been given, less than $250, however, going undesignated, because 
if a letter had been used it would have been C Whereas if 
$300 or more of this $600 had been left undesignated — given to 
the General Nation-wide Campaign Fund — the branch's letter 
would have been A. 

FORM OP BEQUEST 

I give, devise, and bequeath to the Domestic and Foreign 
Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the 
United States of America, for the use of the Society, $ 

If it is desired that the bequest should be applied to some par- 
ticular department of the work, there should be substituted for 
the words, "For the Use of the Society," the words "For Domes- 
tic Missions," or "For Foreign Missions," or "For Work 
Among the Indians," or "For Work Among Colored People," 
or "For Work in Africa," "For Work in China," etc.

REPORT OF PRESIDENT 

It is good for us, my dear friends, to be together once more 
to take stock of the things that have been done in the Auxiliary, 
to take counsel one of another, and to seek the guidance of the 
Holy Spirit, for these days and for the days and work ahead 
of us. 

The work of the past three years has been encouraging. We 
have done some things worth while, and we have laid the 
foundations for some things yet to be accomplished. We have 
failed to do some things we wished and planned for, but let 
us not be discouraged. Let us go forward forgetting those 
things that are behind and pressing forward to the high mark 
of our calling in Christ Jesus. 



16 Forty-second Annual Report 

The district organization has been most successful, and the 
enthusiastic meetings have put new life and heart into our 
work. 

The Prayer Partnership plan is beginning to show fruits, and 
offering as it does in our diocese opportunities for intimate 
knowledge of every branch of our missionary work and closer 
relations with these blessed and privileged ones who are doing 
it will mean much to each of us who takes advantage of this 
opportunity. My hope is that at least one missionary from 
each district and the support of one may be the result of faith- 
fully carrying out this plan. 

We are thankful that we could meet all financial calls from 
Headquarters, as well as co-operating in Union Prayer service 
and United Prayers for Unity. 

Our gifts in money are larger than ever before, our United 
Thank Offering larger, and our Box Work and Educational 
Work, with the prepared plans of progressive work, promise 
great things. 

Members of our Auxiliary on the Woman's State Legislative 
Committee, active co-operation in State Welfare and Social 
Service programs, Prison Reform and Juvenile Court work, 
contributions for the chapel at Samarcand, added to our accus- 
tomed work along social service lines, show a better understand- 
ing and more constructive carrying out of real Social Service. 

With our Hoke Ramsaur Memorial completed, as well as 
our fund for communion services, we can look forward to the 
work yet to be accomplished with much encouragement. 

The fund for the Training School at St. Augustine's and 
the Hostelry at New York is yet to be completed. A sum for 
rebuilding in Japan is asked and will be given, and the needs 
of our Orphanage, our own little ones, calls to us for immedi- 
ate response. Our work with the Colored Women's Auxiliary 
has been helpful to both, and I trust we may co-operate with 
them. 

As I pass on to my successor, as President of the Auxiliary, 
my gavel and my official duties, let me express to her my hope 
that she may receive during the three years of her term of 
office as rich blessings as I have, in the sincere co-operation and 
loving sympathy of every officer and member of the Auxiliary. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 17 

May God's blessings rest on her and on each of you. We 
are His interpreters to men. Let us not fail through diligent 
examination of ourselves, frequent prayer and communion with 
Him and through unwearying work for Him, to so interpret 
Him to others that they too will love and follow Him. "Keep 
your hearts with all diligence," that in your lives others may 
see His likeness. 

Fannie N. Bickett, 
President. 

REPORT OF SECRETARY 

The Annual Report was prepared and mailed to the Diocesan 
and branch officers early in the summer. 

In January report blanks were sent out, and answers re- 
ceived from 58 branches, with 2,092 members. Four branches 
were never heard from. 

Besides the names of officers and number of members, the 
report blanks contained a questionnaire which was sent from 
the Church Missions House and which follows, with figures: 

1. Number of Prayer Groups 70 

2. Number of Corporate Communions 60 

3. Number of Quiet Bays, Retreats, and other Devotional 

Meetings 47 

4. Number of subscribers for Prayer Leaflets 19 

5. Number of Recruits to Mission Field 8 

6. Number of Parish units of Church Service League 14 

All other necessary business was attended to. 

Ellen Dortch Shore, 

Secretary. 

REPORT OF SUPPLY DEPARTMENT 

During the past year the Box Supply Department has sent 
boxes valued at $3,911.67. The value of boxes sent in the 
Raleigh Convocation was $2,014.30, and the Charlotte Convo- 
cation $1,897.37. Boxes sent to fill appeals from, the Mis- 
sions House were valued at $925.23. Thompson Orphanage 
boxes $1,686.40, and for worthy causes $1,300.04. 



18 FORTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 

I have sent 65 circular letters to the branches and 36 have 
reported boxes sent. I desire here to make this request of the 
branches : When you send a box please report it at once, and 
state where sent, and to whom. 

I wish to thank you for your co-operation in this work, and 
I trust that this year there will be added interest in this depart- 
ment. Please bear this in mind, that when we take allotments 
from the Missions House and promise to fill them and fail, 
some missionary and family may have to suffer during the 
winter for the lack of proper clothing. This work is so big 
and has such wonderful possibilities that we need means with 
which to carry it on as it should be done. 

I am going to present two plans to you which would enable 
us to do this work so as to render best service and to raise the 
standard of efficiency in this Diocese, and I do hope that you 
will accept one of them : 

"I know thy works : behold, I have set before thee an open 
door, and no man can shut it."

Chairman.

The best known and best loved work in the Church today is 
that of the United Thank Offering. 

What is the purpose of this offering? 

It is a woman's work for women. Every woman and young 
girl in the Church is given a little blue box, and asked to place 
in it an offering when she is thankful. The funds thus obtained 
supply the needs of our own women who so bravely face the 
trials and dangers of the Mission Field. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 19 

As Bishop Tuttle said : "The United Thank Offering is an 
outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace/' the 
little blue box representing the material side of this holy work. 

In this day of multiple organizations, it is a comfort to feel 
that there is one phase of the Church work which is conducted 
by each individual, with responsibility to no one but God Him- 
self. The stimulus comes not from public meetings, but from 
daily contact with our dear Lord. May we reverently call this 
a little society of two, the individual giver, and the blessed 
Master? In the ordinary society, there are assessments and 
dues, but here we have the joyful exhilaration that comes from 
the voluntary thank offering. 

Somehow there is a sense of inadequacy in the merely spoken 
word of thanks. The language of love is giving, and the indi- 
vidual secret gift is anointed with the oil of gladness above its 
fellows. I believe that the woman who takes her part in the 
United Thank Offering is helped in her own soul, and will find 
a truer happiness in her religion, and a deeper reality in the 
sacramental life of the Church. 

Let us dedicate ourselves afresh to this work. We are thank- 
ful for our daily blessings, beautiful sunshine, showers, health, 
friends, food, raiment, escape from accidents, relief from pain. 
Do our little blue boxes daily receive our expression of this 
thankfulness ? 

Let our slogan be: To serve those who serve. 

Our aim : A thank offering when we are thankful. 

There is an honor roll for the parishes whose offerings are 
increased each year, but the ideal honor roll is the one in which 
every woman and girl understands the purpose of the United 
Thank Offering, and has a share in it. 

I pray God's blessing on our effort.

Custodian.

REPORT ON THE OFFERING OF LIFE 

Since our meeting in Raleigh, May, 1923, when the Aux- 
iliary sang so feelingly "Praise God From Whom All Blessings 
Flow," Mrs. Creech has completed her training at St. Faith's 
and is now working at St. Andrew's Priory School, Honolulu, 
T. H. 

Adelaide Smith is now at the Church Training and Dea- 
coness House, 708 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, Pa., and a 
recent letter from her tells that on June 6 she goes to the Epis- 
copal Hospital for ten weeks hospital training. 

Andrew Milstead is still at the University of JSTorth Caro- 
lina. He expects to finish his college work before going into 
the mission field. 

Our other volunteers are: 

Miss Sarah Corbett, Tarboro. 

Miss Susan E. Hayes, Henderson. 

Miss Frances Gasele, Charlotte. 

Mr. John R. Edmunds, Jr., Greensboro. 

May we thank God for these volunteers and pray His guid- 
ance upon their training and future work. 

Sophronia Cooper, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

During the past year the Social Service Department has con- 
tinued its work along the lines of organization and the study 
of State problems in social welfare. As a result we are better 
equipped to fulfill our obligations as a member of the Women's 
Legislative Council, on which we were granted representation 
at the request of the Convention last year. Your representa- 
tives on this Council are Mrs. Bickett, Miss Sally Dortch, 
Mrs. R. B. Davis, and Mrs. J. S. Holmes. Their work lies yet 
ahead of them, since it concerns itself with welfare legislation 
that will come before the General Assembly at its session next 
January. 

In order to meet the financial obligation that is involved in 
this representation, I recommend that each branch designate 
one of its specials this year for "Legislative Council," with the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 21 

suggestion that any surplus that may be appropriated in this 
way shall go to the Samarcand Chapel. 

In October a conference on Social Service was held in Chapel 
Hill under the auspices of the Diocesan Social Service Com- 
mission, which was attended by many Auxiliary women. One 
of the recommendations made by the committee appointed at 
this conference to draw up a diocesan social service policy was 
the following : 

"That there be established a State-wide commission, consist- 
ing of two representatives from each of the three dioceses, look- 
ing to co-ordinated social service effort throughout the confines 
of the State." 

The recommendations of the committee will be submitted to 
the Diocesan Convention in May. When we have secured a 
State-wide social service committee our efficiency in supporting 
the welfare work of the State will be greatly increased. 

I was urged by the Diocesan Commission to attend the 
National Social Service Conferences to be held in Toronto, 
June 21-July 2. This I am planning to do; and I shall be 
very glad during the coming year to visit any branches or 
attend any district meetings that will offer me the opportunity 
of passing on to them, as well as I can, the ideas and the inspi- 
ration that I am hoping to get from these great gatherings of 
social service workers. 

The North Carolina Conference for Social Service, which 
met this year in Charlotte, was again brought to the attention 
of the Auxiliary, the branches belonging to the Charlotte Con- 
vocation, because of their proximity, being specially urged to 
send representatives. 

Reports of notable work in a number of branches have been 
sent in to me, but as these will be brought out later during the 
Convention I will not refer specifically to them here. There 
are indications that many reports will show an ever-increasing 
interest in social service. Every branch should subscribe to 
The Carolina Churchman, as it carries from time to time mes- 
sages of importance from the Diocesan Commission. 

The importance of our being thoroughly organized for social 
service will become specially apparent this year. If, with our 
help, the Prison Reform Bill alone were to get through the 



22 Forty-second Annual Report 

Legislature, surely we would have cause to rejoice that the 
Auxiliary has recognized social service as a legitimate sphere 
of her activities. And let us make no mistake — the passage of 
that hill will require all the influence that socially-minded men 
and women can bring to hear on our lawmakers. I ask you, 
therefore, to be ready to respond to calls for pressure upon your 
representatives. 

Mrs. Burgwyn's report on the Samarcand chapel, which was 
sent out to all the districts, shows that the appeal gained re- 
sponse from many branches. The modest amount asked for the 
chapel, however, is far from completed, and I hope that every 
branch will avail itself this year of this opportunity to have a 
share in the wonderful work of saving souls that is going on at 
Samarcand. 

During the coming year our studies will be directed espe- 
cially to our Juvenile Court system. Its effective operation in 
each county depends upon an intelligent public sentiment sup- 
porting it. I therefore ask the women of each branch to set 
for themselves this year the task of finding out just what the 
Juvenile Court is, and then discovering how it is functioning 
in their particular county. 

For program material I urge the use of the monthly bulletin, 
Public Welfare Progress, and the weekly News Letter. Both 
are published for free distribution, the former by the State 
Department of Public Welfare at Raleigh, and the latter by 
the Extension Division of the University. By the free study 
of these handy sheets we will come to "know North Carolina," 
and thus knowing will be enabled to help her to realize her 
place in that "new earth" where there shall be no more sorrow, 
nor crying, nor shall there be any more pain, for Righteousness 
shall dwell therein. 

Emilie R. Holmes, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT — 1923-1924 

In this age of doubt and unrest, when the perplexing prob- 
lems of the world and matters regarding Christian truth, now 
so widely debated, demand that religion and intelligence shall 
be closely allied, religious education has become the great need 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 23 

of the day. The Church is putting forth every effort to extend 
the information of her people and to enlist them in her great 
adventures in faith and service. 

With almost unlimited opportunities and advantages on every 
side, indifference and ignorance are indeed terms of reproach 
and have no excuse for existence. Among the women of the 
Church, largely through the influence of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary, there is a general awakening of interest in all educa- 
tional work. There is today scarcely a mission so weak or a 
branch of the Auxiliary so small that has not some time set 
apart for study. It is true that the narrower construction 
placed upon the Church's mission in the past has not always 
made the Mission Study Class attractive or appealing, but in 
the more modern interpretation of missions there is a broader 
challenge, in that "Missions do not consist merely in preaching 
the gospel and sending missionaries to the heathen," but they 
include questions concerning the whole of man and all of life. 

Surely a question of such vast importance is worthy of the 
most serious thought and the best endeavor of which we are 
capable! While the resolution adopted at the last Convention 
in Raleigh, giving place on the program of each monthly meet- 
ing for some educational feature, has not been literally put 
into effect, it has resulted in greater loyalty and a higher idea 
of the meaning and responsibilities of Christian Stewardship. 

It is recommended that the same shall be reaffirmed at this 
meeting. 

From Headquarters comes the splendid report that 8,000 
copies of the text-book for the past year, "Creative Forces in 
Japan," have been sent out from the Book Store of our Church 
Missions House alone, which is an increase of 4,000 more than 
the number sent out last year. "The Suggestions to Leaders," 
by Miss Boyer, exhausted its third edition. The report also 
says that such an increase in work means that special attention 
should be paid to training new leaders, and emphasizes the 
summer conference as the best place to secure such training. 
All members of the Auxiliary are hereby urged to make every 
effort possible to attend the Conference within our borders, 
the one at beautiful Blue Ridge. It is at once an inspiration 



24 Forty-second Annual Report 

and an education ! Last summer we had the distinction of 
more members in attendance than any other Church. 

Next in importance to the Conference comes the Diocesan 
Normal Training Class, to be held under the direction of Rev. 
Mr. Scovil, Educational Secretary for the Diocese, in which the 
Woman's Auxiliary is included and its co-operation desired. 
This is a most progressive step and will go far toward solving 
a serious problem and broadening educational work. 

Without wishing to interfere or to infringe upon the rights 
and privileges of districts, it is suggested that they arrange 
their meetings so those in one Convocation shall not conflict 
or come too near the time of ones in the other. 

The smaller branches, especially those in rural districts, are 
commended to the larger ones for their aid and encouragement 
in every way possible. 

The subject of Mission Study for the coming season is China, 
the text-book, "China's Real Revolution," by Paul Hutchinson. 
A list of books to be used as collateral reading will be published 
in The Carolina Churchman. 

While much is left to be desired, educational work has made 
great gains and enthusiastic plans are going forward. 

Easdale Shaw, 

Secretary. 

REPORT OF THE CHURCH PERIODICAL, CLUB 

The year just ending has not found the various branches of 
the C. P. C. in this Diocese as active as in the past several 
years, a subject of the deepest regret to your correspondent. 
When one considers the homes of culture, the innumerable 
papers and magazines that are read by our Church people, many 
of which are afterwards destroyed, and then think of the homes 
that know not the blessing of reading matter but are craving 
it, of the reading rooms that are yearning for more books and 
periodicals to place where the needs are urgent, it is apparent 
that we are neglecting one of the most important fields of serv- 
ice in the Church. 

It seems fitting that the following, taken from the C. P. C. 
Annual Report, 1923, may be given here : 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 25 

"During the past ten years millions of dollars have been 
raised. More are now being raised to feed the bodies of starv- 
ing children. When will hearts and hands be equally open to 
the appeal of unfed minds and spirits? See the little hands 
stretched out from mill town and mining camp, from wide 
prairie and mountain cove; hear the childish voices asking for 
the beauty, the joy, the wonder that books have brought us: 
'We too would know Alice and Tom Sawyer; we too would 
believe in fairies ! Do not leave us ignorant of the world of 
nature around us ; do not deprive us of the example of the 
saints and heroes? Set our minds free to find the best in life.' 
A superintendent of rural schools exclaims, 'Why teach our 
children to read if we can give them nothing to read?' and 
social workers everywhere beg for books as the best safeguards 
against harmful environment." 

Only a third of our branches has submitted reports for the 
year 1923, although there are others that have done work but 
failed to report. The following has been reported by the 
Librarians : 

Current periodicals sent regularly 110 

Donors 55 

Odd magazines sent 325 

Books given 49 

Scrap books 3 

Easter cards 5 

Money spent $5.00 

Books and magazines have been sent to the names given below : 
Virginia Episcopal School, Lynchburg, Virginia ; Library of Boone 
University ; St. Stephen's Mission, Fort Yukon ; The Red Dragon, 
Cordova ; George C. Thomas Memorial Library, Fairbanks, Alaska ; 
Thompson Orphanage ; Patterson School. 

The earthquake and fire destroyed the Library— the build- 
ing — at St. Paul's University, Tokyo, but it is with thanks- 
giving that it is stated that the books have not been injured. 
On the other hand only half a dozen of the volumes in St. 
Luke's Hospital escaped destruction. More French and German 
books are needed to make up the 2,000 for St. Paul's required 
by the Japanese Department of Education. This is a special 
appeal. St. Matthew's Mission, Fairbanks, Alaska, wants 
books for the Sunday School Library there. Also additions, 



26 Forty-second Annual Report 

mostly volumes of recent fiction, are needed at the George C. 
Thomas Memorial Library. 

For the present year I urge each one to pass on to another 
the magazines and papers when read, and to conscientiously 
avoid throwing away one single piece of literature that may 
benefit another. 

Again I beg that you use the C. P. C. Prayer card and see 
that it is used in your Auxiliary meetings. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mary Hilliard Hinton, 
Correspondent 17, C. P. C. 

REPORT OF THE CHURCH SERVICE LEAGUE 

I am so glad to have a few minutes to speak to you of the 
Church Service League. I have not a long report to make to 
you. I especially am glad to be able to explain to you a little 
about the work of the "Church Service League." Many of you 
know all I know of it, for there has been literature put out by 
the National Council, and the Church papers give much about 
it. So many of you know that (according to Dr. Milton's pro- 
posal at the Triennial in Portland) this work is now under the 
Field Department, and the Rev. Mr. McKinstry, its corre- 
sponding secretary, has it directly in charge at the Church 
Missions House. At the Provincial Synod last year it was 
decided to do away with the Provincial officers of the Church 
Service League. I believe this was the reason. The Church 
Service League must develop out from the parishes. It is dis- 
tinctly a parish program, to be fostered in the dioceses, in the 
separate parishes. And where all the parishes see the vision, a 
strong diocesan organization will be developed, which will widen 
into provincial recognition. 

Just what does the Church Service League propose to all the 
parishes ? 

It suggests and fosters this end : Every parish organized in 
the five fields of service; every member of the parish working 
in some definite, Christian work, and all such work done by 
any member of the parish receiving recognition. Every parish 
will have a definite program, a plan, published, that is to cover 



The Woman's Auxiliary 27 

one or more year's work, that all know and can read. Once, 
twice or twelve times a year a parish meeting is held and the 
plans of the Vestry, the Men's Bible Class, the Boy Scouts, the 
Choir, the Auxiliary, the Girls' Friendly, etc., etc., are fostered, 
and every one has a part in some definite work. It may not be 
definite Church work, it may be the Red Cross, charity organi- 
zation or necessary community work, but all Christian work 
done by parish members. There are some parishes in this Dio- 
cese where the League has been successfully at work for several 
years. There are others where the work has just been organ- 
ized. Some parishes have the women's work well organized 
and are taking into it the work of the men. For, though this 
work was first suggested and fostered by the Woman's Aux- 
iliary for work among women, it is now a plan for the whole 
work of a parish, carried on by men and women in "the parish, 
the community, the Diocese, the nation, and the world." 

"The method of the League is either (and this is important) 
to federate existing organizations into a working unit, or else 
to formulate an organization to include all parish activities. 
Local conditions should determine which method is followed." 
This last sentence is quoted from Bulletin No. 37, sent out 
from the Church Missions House, in which a "Statement of 
Principles," "A Suggested Plan of Parish Organization," and 
"An Historical Sketch of the Church Service League" is given, 
with helpful prayers. Now, what has been done in our Dio- 
cese? In the first place, Bishop Cheshire is heartily in favor 
of the League and has taken great interest in putting the work 
of the League before the Diocese. 

At the last Diocesan Convention held in Oxford last May, 
the Rev. Isaac Hughes, of course with Bishop Cheshire's sanc- 
tion, brought the League to the attention of the clergy and laity 
there assembled, and they passed this resolution : "That the 
Diocese of North Carolina, in Convention assembled, approve 
the policy of the National Church in regard to the Church 
Service League, and urge, as far as practicable, its adoption and 
operation throughout the Diocese." 

On February 22, last, a conference on "The Church Service 
League" was held in the parish house of Christ Church, 
Raleigh, to which all the clergy of the Diocese and lay dele- 



28 Forty-second Annual Report 

gates from each parish were invited. We were most fortunate 
in having Bishop Cheshire to preside and Dr. Milton to lead 
the Conference. It proved very helpful. The chapel was 
filled with an interested audience, and ten of the parishes and 
missions were represented. 

A committee was appointed by the Bishop to consider the 
work of the League and draw up recommendations to be pre- 
sented to the coming Diocesan Convention. 

The Church Service League expresses itself in the Parish, 
the Community, the Diocese, the Nation and the World, through 
Prayer, Study, and Service. 

"It is the parish in action." 

Louisa A. S. Way, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE AUXILIARY SPECIAL 

Immediately after the Annual Meeting in Raleigh, your 
Chairman sent a letter to every branch, stating that the Annual 
Meeting had set $3,000, the equivalent of $2 a member from 
every branch, as our goal, and that Epiphany, 1925, had been 
named by the National Committee as the date for the comple- 
tion of the fund. A program for use in this Diocese was also 
sent out. 

Later Mrs. H. M. Bonner, Mrs. W. L. Wall, Mrs. P. H. 
Craighill, Mrs. J. R. Wilkes, Mrs. H. S. Hartzell, Mrs. George 
White, and Mrs. T. E. Shore were appointed to further this 
work in their several districts. They have been most faithful — 
distributing leaflets, reprints of a letter from the National 
Chairman and another from the Acting Executive Secretary. 
And by their personal words they have urged the branches to 
give and to pray for the success of this undertaking. 

And it was hoped that Ave would be able to report to this 
meeting that $3,000 was given or pledged. There is much to 
encourage; $890 was given last year, but the remaining $2,110 
will not be reached unless every branch makes the determined 
effort that many branches made last year and are making again 
this year. Strange as it may seem to us, North Carolina is 
one of the strong dioceses of the Church. Much is expected 
of us. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 29 

So much has been said about the school for training negro 
women but not enough about the New York house: Of the 
$75,000, $65,000 will be spent for this house. There is at 
present nowhere near headquarters where incoming and out- 
going missionaries may spend a day or two except high-priced 
hotels and boarding houses. And more disastrous, there is no 
place with a strong Church and Christian atmosphere to house 
those who are studying at the institutions of higher learning 
in New York. 

A missionary in training in New York the past winter 
writes : "I told Bishop Floyd that nothing I had heard or 
studied had made me want to teach in that school one bit more, 
and all our missionaries (those doing advanced work) are in 
that atmosphere." 

It is not so easy to stir people with this appeal as your leaders 
know; there is little appeal to the emotions but there is a 
powerful appeal in this Special to our reason, isn't there? 

The National Committee asks us to give — to give liberally 
and quickly because these houses cannot be built without money, 
but they ask us with equal urgency to pray — to pray that these 
houses may not be mere institutions. And they ask us to study 
the need for training the Church's workers. 

Won't you turn back to the Church papers and reread what 
they have reprinted from the Survey of Woman's Work in the 
Church ? Think, or find out, how the training of secular work- 
ers of this State is going forward. Then compare it with the 
facilities the whole American Church has — rather has not — 
for training its women workers. Let us think. 

When we were baptized we promised to obey the Command- 
ments. Our Saviour Christ saith the great Commandment 
is to love God and to love Him not with our heart and soul 
alone, but with "all thy mind." The Auxiliary Special is an 
appeal to us to make it possible for our missionaries to put 
all their mind at His disposal. 

Claudia Hunter, 

Chairman. 



30 Forty-second Annual Report 



REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

To the President and Members of the Woman's Auxiliary: 

The Prayer Partnership Plan was originated by Miss Lindley 
for the purpose of establishing real contact between the mis- 
sionaries in the field and the members of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary. 

The plan is carried out in our Diocese by a missionary being 
assigned to each district of the Auxiliary. The chairman of 
each district was asked to appoint one person whose special 
duty it would be to correspond with the missionary assigned to 
that district, and also offer special prayers for her and her 
work, but it was hoped that all members would pray for her. 
Each missionary was asked to pray for the district to which she 
had been assigned, and the hope was expressed that she would 
send an occasional letter to the district. 

Only one missionary has failed to respond — the missionary 
assigned to the district of Orange. One other, Rowan's mis- 
sionary, has not been encouraging. One district has not re- 
sponded, but the missionary assigned to that district has written 
to your Chairman several times and seemed pleased with the 
plan. 

The following list shows the districts and missionaries as- 
signed to these districts : 

1. Edgecombe. Chairman — Mrs. F. S. Spruill, Rocky Mount, N. C. 
Correspondent — Miss Carrie Helen Moore, Littleton. Missionary — 
Miss Helen Disbrow, St. Agnes' School, Kyoto, Japan. 

2. Forsyth. Chairman — Mrs. Thomas Shore, Glade Street, Win- 
ston-Salem. Correspondent — Mrs. W. A. Whitaker, Winston-Salem. 
Missionary — Miss Bessie Blacknall, Nenana, Alaska. 

3. Guilford. Chairman — Mrs. Dorian Blair, Greensboro. Corre- 
spondent — Mrs. Dorian Blair, Greensboro. Missionary — Miss Mil- 
dred Hayes, Mayaguez, Porto Rico. 

4. Mecklenburg. Chairman — Mrs. J. L. Watters, Hawthorn Lane, 
Charlotte. Correspondent — No response. Missionary — Mrs. Mary A. 
Coffin, Ethete, Wyoming. 

5. Orange. Chairman — Mrs. W. D. Benton, Hillsboro. Correspon- 
dents — Mrs. E. K. Powe, Durham, and Mrs. Robt. Lawson, Chapel 
Hill. Missionary — Miss Jeannette Barnett, St. Andrew's Priory, 
Honolulu. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 31 

6. Granville. Chairman — Mrs. H. G. Cooper, Oxford. Correspon- 
dent — Mrs. H. G. Cooper, Oxford. Missionary — Miss Maude Whitley, 
1007 Wright Street, Champaign, 111. 

7. Rowan. Chairman — Miss Mary Ramsaur, China Grove. Corre- 
spondent — Mrs. Charles Adams, China Grove. Missionary — Miss 
E. C. Deahl, Nanking, A. C. M., China. 

8. Richmond. Chairman — Mrs. E. W. Baker, Wadesboro. Corre- 
spondent — Mrs. Sadie Leak, Wadesboro. Missionary — Miss M. R. 
Ogden, St. James Hospital, Anking, China. 

9. Wake. Chairman — Mrs. Samuel Lawrence, Raleigh. Correspon- 
dent — Mrs. Clarence Shore, Raleigh. Missionary — Deaconess Emma 
J. Smith, Mullen, Nebraska. 

10. Christ Church Branch. Chairman — Mrs. F. H. Busbee, 
Raleigh. Correspondent — Mrs. F. H. Busbee, Raleigh. Missionary — 
Miss E. K. W. Whitcomb, Bontoc, P. I. 

You see the JNTorth Carolina Diocese has been given the op- 
portunity to come into contact with every phase of the Church's 
work (it is taken for granted that we are interested in Liberia, 
because we have known Mr. Ramsaur). My hope, my dream, 
my prayer, is this : 

That the district of Granville will become so interested in Miss 
Whitley and her work at the University of Illinois that they will 
not be satisfied until they know all that the Rev. Paul Micou and 
Miss Agnes Hall are doing and planning to do in order to Christian- 
ize American students in American colleges, that this great nation 
of ours may become Christian in the lives of its people and in all 
its governmental acts. 

That the districts of Wake and Mecklenburg may realize the hard- 
ships, the loneliness, the poverty of the mission fields in our Western 
States, and the great opportunity they present to the Church to be a 
vitalizing, dominating influence in this growing section of our 
country. 

That as those districts who have missionaries in China, Japan, 
Porto Rico and the Philippines realize the crowding throngs — some 
longing for the Light, others longing for they know not what — they 
may help us all to see the need and the opportunity, and that we 
may all work and pray and give until the kingdoms of this world 
become "the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ." 

Lattka June Alston, 

Secretary. 



Forty-second Annual Report 



REPORT OF RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

Social Service 

Believing that a minimum school term of eight mouths is abso- 
lutely essential if every child iu North Carolina is to have an equal 
opportunity for education with every other child, we heartily endorse 
the efforts of the North Carolina Educational Association and the 
State Department of Public Instruction to secure an eight months 
term. 

Juvenile Court 

The Juvenile Court is generally admitted by social workers and 
students of child welfare to be the best agency yet devised for caring 
for dependent, neglected, and delinquent children. We therefore 
encourage a study of the system in North Carolina, and urge our 
people to co-operate with the courts, and to use their influence to 
secure good men to serve as judges and trained probation officers, 
and places for the temporary care of children, in order that the 
courts may function successfully. 

Prison Reform 

We heartily endorse the program for prison reform legislation 
that is advocated by the N. C. Conference for Social Service at its 
recent annual meeting in Charlotte. 

Farm Colony for Women 

The State of North Carolina makes no provision for correctional 
treatment for women offenders who are not eligible for admission 
to Samarcand. The only recourse of the courts is to fine such 
women, impose a jail sentence or a term in the State Penitentiary, 
none of which provides opportunity for treatment, training, and 
reformation. We therefore approve a State institution specially 
designed to handle this problem. 

It is recommended that the resolution giving place on the pro- 
gram of each monthly meeting for some subject of religious educa- 
tion shall be reaffirmed. 

Resolved, That this Auxiliary go on record as upholding law en- 
forcement in State and Nation. 

Resolved. That this Auxiliary express its appreciation to Mr. 
Wheeler and the Board of Managers for their effort to reduce all 
forms of menial labor on the part of the children to a minimum ; 
and expresses the confidence that the Orphanage will continue to 
train the children in a way that makes for highest citizenship. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 33 

Resolved, That the Woman's Auxiliary in Convention assembled 
wish to express our deep, real, and lasting appreciation of Mrs. 
Bickett's services as President for the last three years. 

Of Mrs. Bickett's mental and social gifts, which are many and 
varied, we shall not speak ; but of her great spiritual power we 
wish to say just one word : 

Such deep, real spirituality as that of our retiring President is, 
and ever shall be, a blessing and an inspiration to each individual 
member of the Woman's Auxiliary in North Carolina. Let us rise 
and express our gratitude and loyalty to Mrs. Bickett. 

REPORT OF GIRLS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY 

As President of the Girls' Friendly Society of the Diocese of 
North Carolina, I feel it is a privilege to speak to this splendid 
body of women, the Woman's Auxiliary. 

The Girls' Friendly Society was founded in England fifty years 
ago by Mrs. Townsend, who saw the need to band together girls 
and woman for mutual aid and help, sympathy and prayer. It was 
organized in this country two years later, and we will celebrate our 
50th anniversary in 1927. We are now 60,000 strong and are grow- 
ing by leaps and bounds. What is the Girls' Friendly? What is its 
object ? 

The Girls' Friendly Society is an organization of the Church to 
unite women and girls in a fellowship of prayer and service for the 
upholding of the highest standard of Christian womanhood. It en- 
deavors to reach every girl at an early age, that she may be led to 
pledge herself to strive for the best things in life, spiritual, intel- 
lectual, physical and social, and to help her attain them. 

The Girls' Friendly is the Church's offering to girlhood ; it is the 
Church's opportunity to reach girls, to use girls for the service of 
others. It is also the training ground for the leaders of the future 
in the Church. It is organized Youth, with all Youth's possibilities 
and opportunities ; it is organized friendship with a Vision ; the 
scope is tremendous and the Vision wonderful, and its usefulness 
and power limited only by our own limitations. It is here that we 
women of the Church must realize our responsibility and opportunity 
to serve the girls of our Church and all girls, for you know mem- 
bership is open to girls of all denominations. An opportunity is then 
offered to the Church to expend its influence in the community, for 
girls cannot attend the weekly meeting without being inspired by 
the beautiful and impressive service of the Church. 

Every parish needs a Girls' Friendly Branch. Is there any girl 
that does not need the four cardinal principles of the Friendly — 
Purity of Life, Dutifulness to parents, Faithfulness in work, and 
Thrift. 



34 Forty-second Annual Report 

We have in our Diocese twelve branches, which are doing splendid 
work. There should be one in every parish. I want you women 
who have no branch in your parish to talk to your rector as soon 
as you get home and organize one. 

Some of you may not know that we have a Girls' Friendly Lodge 
in Raleigh, where a girl can get board and lodging for $7 a week. 
If at any time any of you know of a girl coming to Raleigh who 
wants a home, send her to the Lodge where she will be taken care 
of and chaperoned. 

I have heard persons say that they could not be a working asso- 
ciate of the Friendly as it exacted too much of them, but my ex- 
perience has been that the more you put into it the more you derive 
from it. Is anything nicer than working with girls? but it is a 
work that cannot be gone into in a light spirit, as the responsibility 
is upon us to set the example of Christian womanhood. 

Now, ladies, in closing I would leave with you the idea that the 
aim in view is to influence and help others, yet we can in nowise 
draw out the best in others without attaining spiritual growth in 
our own lives. 

Mrs. J. H. Cordon, 
President G. F. S., Diocese of N. C.

TREASURER'S REPORT 



REPORT ON AUDIT 
From January 1, 1933, to December 31, 1923 

To President and Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary to the 

Presiding Bishop and Council, Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina. 
Ladies : 

Pursuant to request of your Treasurer I have audited your records 
of Receipts and Disbursements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 
1923, and submit herewith report, consisting of "Statement of Receipts 
and Disbursements" and "Reconcilement of Cash on Hand." 

All necessary records were available and have been checked and 
verified. 

Certain receipts for various Funds have been remitted to your 
state Treasurer in excess of the amounts received, such excess remittances 
amounting to $72.80 and has the effect of depleting the Cash Balance 
in the Central Fund. This should be adjusted in the current year and 
credit claimed on your Treasurer's report for 1924. 

Owing to numerous details involved in handling the accounts, it 
is recommended that the various Branches transmit funds to your Treas- 
urer at regular intervals. Quarterly transmittals would probably prove 
to be a practicable method. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. C. Todd, 
Public Accountant. 

April 22, 1924.

PRAYERS FOR USE IN AUXILIARY MEETINGS 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known 
to all nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for His dear 
sake. Amen. 

Fob Volunteebs 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with 
such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost 
parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. 

This, and all things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

Fob Noontide, Daily 

Lord of the Harvest, send forth men full of faith and of the Holy 
Ghost as laborers into Thy harvest ; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

i 
Noonday Pbayeb fob Missions 

Blessed Saviour, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may look 
unto Thee, and be saved ; through Thy merits and mercies, who 
livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever One 
God, world without end. Amen. 

Daily Pbayeb 

O God, for as much as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct 
and rule our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Fob Bible Study Classes 

O God, our Father, Who of Thy Goodness hath given us a Bible 
to be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, help us, we beseech 
Thee, to study this Bible for the sole purpose of learning Thy Will 
concerning us. Help us to understand and remember what we study, 
and help us to be obedient to Thy teaching for Jesus Christ's sake. 
Amen. 

Fob the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for 



The Woman's Auxiliary 



every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service ; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service ; to those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Social Service 

Almighty God, Who hast created man in Thine own image, grant 
us grace to contend fearlessly against evil, and to make no peace 
with oppression ; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help 
us to employ it in the maintenance of justice among men and nations, 
to the glory of Thy Holy Name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Prayer Partnership 

Almighty God Who didst call holy women to be helpers and workers 
in Thy service : bless, we pray Thee, this Thy servant whom Thou 
hast called to a like ministration. Bestow on her the gifts of wisdom 
and sound judgment, of simplicity and singleness of heart. Sustain 
her in all her labor of love. May she speak peace to troubled hearts 
and bring many souls into the joy and liberty of the Gospel. Be 
Thou, O Lord, her guide in doubt, her strength in weariness, and 
her comfort in sorrow. Inspire her with Thy gracious promise that 
though the sower may go forth weeping, bearing precious seed, he 
will come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him. Grant this 
for the sake of Him Who went about doing good, Thy Son Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Supply Department 

O God, our Heavenly Father, Who hast offered us the privilege 
of giving even a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple "to 
the little ones" needing our thought, enrich us with sympathetic 
attention to the needs of others. Teach us, we pray Thee, the true 
fellowship of believers, wherein the personal need of the one is to 
become the warm interest of the many, and make us ready to recog- 



Thirty-seventh Annual Report 



nize the obligations of the common bond of the faith in Thee. 
Bless the gifts which Thou hast put into the hearts of the members 
of Thy Household to make, and bless the lives of those who receive 
our gifts, with all spiritual blessing. 

Grant that we may be so touched by Thine own unspeakable gift 
of salvation that with generous hearts we may joyfully go on Thy 
errands, ready always to assist others who may need our ministering 
mercies. 

We pray Thee so to bestow the benediction of love in the hearts 
of all in Thy Holy Church that each in vocation and ministry may 
truly and godly serve Thee, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. 

Foe Oub Missionaries 

O Lord Jesus Christ, who didst charge thine apostles that they 
should preach the Gospel in every nation ; prosper, we pray Thee, 

all missions at home and abroad (especially ) ; 

give them all things needful for their work, making them centers 
of spiritual life, to the quickening of many souls and the glory of 
Thy Holy Name. Support, guide and bless the clergy who are called 
to labor in these parts of Thy vineyard ; give them grace to witness 
to the faith ; endue them with burning zeal and love ; make them 
faithful under all disappointment and persecution, that having 
turned many to righteousness they may themselves win a crown of 
everlasting glory, being found Thy faithful servants, who livest and 
reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, One God, world without 
end. Amen.

IMPORTANT NOTES 

1. See Constitution and By-Laws on pages 54-55. 

2. The Feast of the Purification is the annual Corporate 
Communion day for the Woman's Auxiliary of the National 
Church; and the Eves of the Feasts of St. Andrew, the Epiph- 
any, the Annunciation and the Transfiguration are the special 
Intercessory Days for the Diocese. Please observe these days. 

3. The special prayer for use before and at the time of the 
election of officers may be found on page 3. 

4. Note carefully Article IX of Constitution. 

5. Article VII of the Constitution reads in part, "A branch 
to have voting privileges must have paid the Central Fund." 

6. Article VIII, Section 3, reads in part, "From the amount 
contributed, according to this scale, the Treasurer shal.l turn 
over one-half to the JSTation-wide Campaign Fund," this amount 
to be distributed according to the needs as seen by the Presiding 
Bishop and Council. Inasmuch as this organization is Auxil- 
iary to the Presiding Bishop and Council, this money will go to 
the general fund, therefore any amount a branch may wish 
to go for diocesan objects should be designated from the re- 
maining half of the branch's contribution. 

7. Send all money, except the United Thank Offering, to 
Mrs. R. B. Davis, 425 Tarboro Street, Rocky Mount, Treasurer. 
Books close for the year December 31, 1925. 

8. Article VIII of the Constitution explains the letter placed 
by most branches in the list of parish branches and their 
officers. Where there is no letter the branch either did not enter 
the sca.le, which every branch should feel free to do or not do as 
seems best to its members (a surprisingly large number, how- 
ever, did follow the new plan), or it did not divide its gifts in 
a way to approach anywhere near the place in the scale the 
amount given entitled it. (At least half must go to the General 
Nation-wide Campaign Fund.) It seems fairer to place no 
letter by a branch in a case where $600, for instance, had been 
given, less than $250, however, going undesignated, because if 
a letter had been used it would have been C. Whereas if 
$300 or more of this $600 had been left undesignated — given to 
the General ISTation-wide Campaign Fund — the branch's letter 
would have been A.

14 Thirty-seventh Annual Repokt 



PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

For the first time I stand before you as your president 
(quoting our Constitution) a to outline the work of the year 
ahead." 

The year past has been an inspiring and successful year in 
the Auxiliary — successful, as we have accomplished our program 
as planned — inspiring, because not satisfied with what we have 
done, we .look to a future with closer companionship with our 
Lord, with more earnest prayer and joyful service, doing all 
we can towards the spread of His Kingdom. 

Two things are foremost in our minds as we prepare for the 
Triennial next October. 

First — That we meet our pledge of $3,000, towards the 
"Auxiliary Special" — the two houses in New York and St. 
Augustine's School — one a home for white women in training 
for missionary work ; and for missionaries at home on furlough, 
preparing for future work in their fields; the other, a training 
school, the first of its kind, where colored women may be 
trained for work among their own people. And second — Our 
United Thank Offering. 

The first is a sacred pledge. 

The second is a free-will offering, with joyful thanks and 
prayer. 

Our two Bishops have requested that the Auxiliary of this 
diocese undertake, as a duty and privilege, the support of Miss 
Lillie Hill in her work at Leaksville. The Executive Committee 
has accepted this responsibility and you will be given oppor- 
tunity to endorse their action, if you so desire. 

In my work as president I am thankful to express to you my 
belief tbat the Auxiliary in this Diocese is well organized for 
work. The members for the most part are active, and I take 
this opportunity to express to you my grateful appreciation 
for your loyal support, your spiritual vision, and the active 
and loving co-operation I have received. And I ask you in your 
daily prayers to pray that I may be guided to do my work — I 
know many of you do this already — even as I pray daily for 
you. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 15 

This excellent organization that we have can only work 
properly when each member of the Auxiliary in our diocese 
does her part of the work. We have a President, Secretaries of 
Departments, District Chairmen, etc. When there is a proper 
response from every call that comes as a part of our work, 
when every Auxiliary letter is answered promptly, then we 
shall know our real strength and go on to greater things. 

There are 87 parishes and missions reported on the Nation- 
wide Campaign roll in our diocese. We report 74 branches, 
63 working branches. 

I present to you the slogan, "87 parishes and missions, 87 
auxiliary branches in the Woman's Auxiliary, before the end 
of this year 1925." How can we do this? There are nine dis- 
tricts in our Auxiliary, all of them at work. Every place in 
each district is accessible to our members in that district. Let 
us help to organize a branch in every mission, in every district, 
where one is not already established, and encourage and help 
in the work of these struggling new branches near us by 
sympathetic co-operation. And let us picture to ourselves those 
spiritually lonely women, members of the Church in this Diocese, 
who can attend, only infrequently, the services of the Church, 
and see that at least they have the opportunity to attend the 
District meetings and (even if unable to attend any meetings) 
that they have United Thank Offering Boxes and so feel them- 
selves remembered, a part of the Church and working in His 
vineyard. We have four Intercessory Days with special offerings 
each year on our Auxiliary program, besides the Annual Cor- 
porate Communion held throughout the Church. Some of you 
keep these days regularly. I hope this year all branches will 
observe them. These days, and many other items of interest 
and necessary information, are noted in our "Annual Report," 
which I hope you will read carefully. 

In several parishes in the Diocese new Branches of the Auxil- 
iary, composed of young women, have been organized. I believe 
this is a wise plan. The older Branch grows in interest, and. 
the younger women also do splendid work. We feel, when we 
see the work of these younger women, that the future of the 
Auxiliary is assured. 



16 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 

I commend to you the suggestion of our Executive Council 
in New York — "That the Woman's Auxiliary pledge itself to 
co-operate in helping the diocese meet its quota for the work 
of the General Church/' and "That we assist the diocese in the 
advanced work of the program assigned each diocese." 

And lastly, and first in importance, let us pray earnestly, and 
work joyfully in our Father's Business. I believe if each of 
us, before she goes to the meetings of her Branch, prays earn- 
estly that God will guide the work of the meeting, and her 
work in it ; that if before every election of officers our prayer 
is earnestly offered; that if we give prayerfully, as our con- 
science directs us, the work of the Auxiliary will go forward 
in each parish or mission as God wills. 

I commend to you "The Manual of Family Prayer," "The 
Daily Bible Readings," the leaflet on the Christian Home, all 
of which can be obtained here. 

Some of us have had the blessing of knowing (as we have 
read "The Daily Bible Readings" each day) that many of the 
Auxiliary in our diocese daily read and study the same words, 
praying together for the strength that comes through the study 
of His Word. 

In the words of another leaflet sent out for our use by our 
Executive Council, "Let us learn to know Christ by a study of 
the Gospels," "Seeking to know Him as your companion, your 
critic, your co-worker." And, "As you honestly take upon your- 
self His tasks, adopting for your own His Way of life, He will 
mean everything to you. You will bring joy to His heart, 
and know the reality of peace." 

Louisa A. S. Way, President. 



SECRETARY'S REPORT 

Your Secretary's initial work was conducting the corres- 
pondence for the first Executive Board meeting of this adminis- 
tration, held in Christ Church Parish House, Raleigh, June 3, 
1924. Later, arrangements were also made for the September 
and March meetings of the Board. The minutes of the three 
meetings have been recorded. 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 17 

After Christmas report blanks were mailed to all branches, 
old and new. From 72 answers were received, giving a member- 
ship of 2,132 and the following information which was sought 
by the Church Missions House: 

Prayer Groups 57 

Corporate Communions 70 

Quiet Days, Retreats, Devotional Meetings 60 

Subscribers to Prayer Leaflets 6 

Delegates Sent to Summer Conferences 12 

Parish Units of Church Service League 17 

In April more than one hundred programs were mailed to 
every Branch President, members of the Executive Board, 
Chairmen of Committees, and, speakers. 

During the year the President and Secretary have worked 
together one day in each week, unless the correspondence was 
insufficient to require that amount of time, which was seldom. 

All other necessary correspondence received prompt attention. 
Four hundred and seventy letters and forty cards have been 
written and sent out. 

Mary Hilliard Hinton, 

Secretary. 

REPORT OF SUPPLY DEPARTMENT 

The figures showing the total of things done in the Supply 
Department for the year 1924 are as follows :

The work in this department, I beg to report, is moving along 
toward more systematized methods which in the future, we 
trust, will show a much larger volume of things accomplished. 
The branches have given their support to the new plan, and 
from information already received during the current year I 
am sure our report for 1925 will show substantial increases. 



18 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 

A larger interest is being manifested in this department of 
our Lord's work, and a better understanding of the aims, pur- 
poses and methods of Box Work has enhanced the value of this 
wide charity, both to its objects and to those who are engaged 
in it. Our sympathies are quickened, our love broadened, and 
our desire to help the needy everywhere will increase as each 
member of the Auxiliary comes in contact with those who call 
for help through active participation in Box Work and in the 
maintenance and distribution from the Supply Boom. 

Our earnest hope and sincere prayer is that we may in this 
work be found faithful, and that our efforts may be used by 
Him in the advancement of His Kingdom and service to others. 

I desire to thank those who have so generously given assist- 
ance to this department and to express the earnest desire that 
all branches wiLJ continue to accord it their loyal support. 

Virginia Bernard Devtn, Chairman. 

THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 
Diocese of North Carolina for the Year 1924 

Mks. F. S. Spruill, Custodian, Rocky Mount 

Amount received during the year $5,513.43 

Amount previously reported 4,837.41 

Interest on above 253.59 

Total amount in hand $10,604.43 

The best-known and best-loved work in the Church today is 
that of the United Thank Offering. 

What is the purpose of this offering? 

It is a woman's work for women. Every woman and young 
girl in the Church is given a little blue box and asked to place 
in it an offering when she is thankful. The funds thus obtained 
supply the needs of our own women who so bravely face the 
trials and dangers of the Mission Field. 

As Bishop Tuttle said : "The United Thank Offering is an 
outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace," 
the little b.lue box representing the material side of this holy 
work. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 19 

In this day of multiple organizations it is a comfort to feel 
that there is one phase of the Church work which is conducted 
by each individual, with responsibility to no one but God 
Himself. The stimulus comes not from public meetings, but 
from daily contact with our dear Lord. May we reverently 
call this a little society of two, the individual giver and the 
blessed Master? In the ordinary society there are assessments 
and dues, but here we have the joyful exhilaration that comes 
from the voluntary thank offering. 

The isolated woman and the invalid are no longer helpless. 
Through fervent prayers and secret gifts the wonderful privi- 
lege is given them, quietly and alone in their own homes, to 
aid in the advancement of the Kingdom of Almighty God. 

Somehow there is a sense of inadequacy in the merely spoken 
word of thanks. The language of love is giving, and the indi- 
vidual secret gift is anointed with the oil of gladness above 
its fellows. I believe that the woman who takes her part in 
the United Thank Offering is helped in her own soul, and will 
find a truer happiness in her religion and a deeper reality in 
the sacramental life of the Church. 

Let us dedicate ourselves afresh to this work. We are thank- 
ful for our daily blessings, beautiful sunshine, showers, health, 
friends, food, raiment, escape from accidents, relief from pain. 
Do our little blue boxes daily receive our expression of this 
thankfulness ? 

Let our slogan be: To serve those who serve. 

Our aim : A thank offering when we are thankful. 

There is an honor rol,l for the parishes whose offerings are 
increased each year, but the ideal honor roll is the one in 
which every woman and girl understands the purpose of the 
United Thank Offering and has a share in it. 

I pray God's blessing on our effort. 

Alice Winston Sprutll.

New York. She has offered and hopes to go to a foreign field 
some day. 

(3) Miss Elizabeth H. Gordon, of Spray, has been added to 
the list. 

(4) Mr. John R. Edmunds, Jr., of Greensboro, who is work- 
ing at Christ School, Arden, has been transferred from the 
list of volunteers to that of our workers. 

(5) A new recruit from North Carolina is Rev. Leicester F. 
Kent. He was recently ordained by Bishop Penick and has 
been accepted for Alaska. 

The Volunteers From the Diocese of North Carolina 

Miss Sarah Corbett, Tarboro. 

Miss Susan E. Hayes, Henderson. 

Miss Frances Gasele, Charlotte. 

Miss Elizabeth Smith, Scotland Neck. 

Miss Adelaide Smith, Charlotte. 

Miss Elizabeth Smith (a nurse), from Scotland Neck, has 
volunteered since last year, and her appointment is pending. 

Miss Adelaide Smith, from Charlotte, is continuing her 
training at the Deaconess House, Philadelphia. This summer 
she expects to be busy with the ten weeks summer work that is 
required. 

The second phase of the work of the Committee on the 
Offering of Life is that of encouraging and securing funds for 
Diocesan Delegates to Summer Conferences. And that you 
may see how these two work together, I will say that in a 
recent .letter from Miss Adelaide Smith, I learned that the 
Deaconess House at Philadelphia expects to send a representa- 
tive to Blue Ridge this summer, and Miss Smith especially 
wished that should any of our volunteers be there that they 
should meet her and then learn about the Deaconess House and 
the offered training so necessary for the Mission Field. 

Our committee is especially anxious that each of you under- 
stands about our Diocesan Delegates to Summer Conferences. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 23 

We wish you to know definitely (1) how the money is col- 
lected; (2) what is the purpose of the money; (3) who are 
the delegates. 

( 1 ) How the money is collected ? 

The Committee on the Offering of Life sent out letters, 
signed by the chairman of the committee, to each parish branch 
of the Auxiliary, asking for a contribution to be sent Mrs. 
Parks and designated Diocesan Summer Conference Delegates. 
Of course, we are interested in your parish delegates, and trust 
that you are sending a goodly number, but our committee is 
concerned only about the financing of those sent from the 
Diocese-at-large. In response to this letter, donations to this 
fund have amounted to $95. 

(2) What is the purpose of the money? 

The purpose of this fund is to bring to the student life of 
our Church the information and the inspiration of the great 
Church Conferences. 

(3) Who are the delegates? 

The amount of the money sent in largely determines the 
number of delegates. This year our committee, with the hearty 
approval of our Diocesan President, has decided to send two 
girls to Blue Kidge and one to Sewanee. You may know that 
the distance to Sewanee will necessarily make the cost of one 
delegate to Sewanee almost equal that of two to B.lue Ridge. 
We especially wish you to know that the Auxiliary does not 
pay all of the expenses of these delegates. To the Blue Ridge 
delegate $25 is given; the remainder of the expenses, which is 
between $25 and $30, is paid by the delegate herself. To the 
Sewanee delegate $50 is given, and she herself pays the remain- 
der—about $30. 

The delegates are elected by the Saint Mary's student body, 
and the delegates for the 1925 Summer Conferences are: 

For Blue Ridge: 

Miss Margaret Bu,llitt, Chapel Hill, K C. 

Miss Mela Royall, Goldsboro. 

Alternates : 

Miss Joye McCuen, Greenville, S. C. 

Miss Olivia Mobley, Danville, Va. 

For Sewanee: 

Miss Sylbert Pendleton, Fort Benning, Ga. 



24 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 

Alternate : 

Miss Joye McCuen, Greenville, S. C. 

All of these girls intend to return to the school in the fall, 
and, though their home town may be outside of our Diocese, 
they wi,U represent our Church school student body and will 
bring back to the other girls the information and inspiration 
that you have made it possible for them to have.

REPORT OF SOCIAL. SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

We have adopted as our Diocesan policy — a policy upon 
which the Auxiliary could unite as a whole — the strengthening 
and support of agencies already existing for the social better- 
ment of our State, and particularly the State Department of 
Public Welfare. In addition to this general policy, we have 
developed local organization for the strengthening and spread 
of local socia,l service work, and we now have in about forty 
branches a chairman specially in charge of this phase of the 
Auxiliary work. We should not be content, however, until 
every parish, no matter how small, shows a feeling of responsi- 
bility toward the life of the local community. 

Our branches have studied the activities of the State Depart- 
ment of Public Welfare through the educational work of the 
Social Service Department of the Auxiliary. I think I may 
say that the State welfare institutions have been placed on the 
map, as it were, for our Church people. 

Our social service committees have also co-operated with 
other agencies in a study of the Juvenile Court system as it 
works in our State, with a view to help make it what it should 
become — a great child-saving agency. These committees have 
moreover focussed attention upon a condition in North Caro- 
lina that is holding back a large class of our citizens. I refer 
to the condition of tenancy among the white and colored popu- 
lations on our farms in Eastern and Piedmont North Carolina. 

Bearing in mind the teaching of Jesus that the forces of 
evil should be attacked in His Name, the Church (through the 
Auxiliary) has taken a brave step in allying herself with the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 25 

secular women's organizations for remedial legislation. The 
work of the Women's Legislative Council has already been 
reported upon by the chairman of your representatives on the 
council, and so I shall not go into detail concerning it. But 
what encouragement can we find to offset the apparent failure 
of our efforts in this direction? First, and foremost, a real 
interest in welfare legislation has been aroused in our branches. 
This is attested by the fact that our quota for the expenses of 
the council in its .legislative activities has been oversubscribed 
by $27.50, which sum has been given to the Samarcand Chapel, 
and that as many as thirty branches, ranging from the very 
largest down to the very smallest, had a share in sums ranging 
from $15 to $1 in subscribing this fund of $177.50. 

I wish that all the parish reports could be read and 
incorporated in the Annual Report. That is impossible, but I 
shall mention a few of the outstanding things that are being 
done besides the usual care of the sick, visits to jails, Christmas 
boxes, etc., etc. I find from Winston-Salem "co-operation in a 
practical way with the local Child Welfare Department and a 
series of ta,lks given before the Auxiliary by the head of this 
work"; from Henderson, "aid to Colored Hospital and money 
sent to Samarcand Chapel"; from Charlotte, "a free clinic at 
Saint Peter's Hospital for tonsil cases, $300 given to the Good 
Samaritan Hospital, a talk by the Commissioner of Public 
Welfare; from Durham, response to emergency call for aid in 
suffering caused by industrial situation in one of our mill 
towns, close co-operation with the Superintendent of Public 
Welfare; society of young girls formed for welfare work, with 
the Auxiliary social service chairman as adviser; from Greens- 
boro, the "endorsement of international peace plans and repre- 
sentation at the Sociological Congress held in Charlotte" ; from 
Wadesboro, "support of a tubercular patient for three months 
at a sanatorium" ; from the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, the sup- 
port of an old lady at Saint Luke's Home at an annual cost of 
$300. Particularly fine was the report sent in by the Rocky 
Mount branch, whose activities along social lines cover almost 
-every field that one can think of, including visits to many of 
the State institutions, and involving an expenditure of severaj. 
hundred dollars. These items are gleaned from full reports 



26 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 

sent me, and they can probably be matched by many other 
branches which have not, however, reported to me their local 
work. 

Emily R. Holmes. 

REPORT OF EDUCATIONAL. DEPARTMENT 

Surely no Educational Secretary could have been more for- 
tunate in being called into service than at the annual meeting 
held in Saint Martin's Church, Charlotte, three years ago ! At 
this time the district system was inaugurated and the Diocese 
divided into nine districts, thereby simplifying and system- 
atizing the Avork, making it possible to present the wonderful 
programs adopted by the Church to nine groups of women 
comprising almost the entire Diocesan organization. In this 
way, reaching out and coming into personal touch not only 
with every branch of the Auxiliary, even to the smallest and 
most remote, but with every individual member. ISTo innova- 
tion in the organization in recent years has been more pro- 
gressive or more effective. 

Under the old system, educational work may be regarded as 
having been largely preparatory for the new day that was 
dawning and the wider field of service in store for the women 
of the Church. We have become not only citizens, but citizens 
of the world. The ends of the earth have been brought nearer 
together, and we must think and act in terms of the world. 

It has been said there is everywhere a growing conscious- 
ness of the unity of mankind, and there was never a time in 
history when clear thinking and sound Christian education 
were of greater importance than the present in order to face 
the difficult situations before us and to arrive at a correct solu- 
tion of the problems. 

To meet the changed conditions the Church has marshalled 
her forces and organized a great nation-wide campaign of edu- 
cation and service. Splendid leaders are giving their time and 
their best efforts — the responsibility now rests upon us ! The 
questions for us to decide are, "Do you know?" "What shall 
we do about it?" Two small pamphlets bearing these names 
are suggested for your consideration. As educational work for 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 27 

Church, as well as State now begins in the early fall and practi- 
cally ceases in the early summer, these annual meetings may, 
in a way, be called the close of the school year, to be followed 
by Summer Conferences that make our vacations count and 
well worth-while. Gone, indeed, are the days when there was 
nothing to be done! In making out reports for the year's 
work, much is always left to be desired, but it must be remem- 
bered that, after all, Christian education is only in its pioneer 
stage. Some one has gone so far as to speak of the efforts that 
have been made as first aid to the injured. However, where 
there are signs of life and growth, there is always hope, and 
it may be truly said that there has been increased interest and 
progress in every department. Old branches have awakened 
with renewed vigor and new ones have been formed, all coming 
under observation of the Educational Department, have done 
something — many have done well. 

In connection with mission study for the year, "One Hun- 
dred Questions on China" were sent out, and to the first circle, 
Roanoke Rapids, District of Edgecombe, has been awarded the 
distinction of having returned the largest number of correct 
answers. If others have gained as much from the work of 
the past three years as the Educational Secretary herself, she 
should be satisfied. 

I thank you for your co-operation and for the privilege of 
serving you. 

Easdale Shaw. 

REPORT OP THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina is made up of thirty-six branches, about half of which are 
active at the present time. The report for the year 1924 is 
incomplete, due to the fact that only ten of these branches sent 
in statements of their year's work. The work reported is as 
follows : 

Current periodicals sent regularly 58 

Donors of these periodicals 52 

Books, theological and secular 17 

Odd magazines sent 691 

Money spent $2.00 



28 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 

In addition to this, upon the request of Miss Isabel Graves, 
a teacher at the Va,lle Crucis Mission School, $5 was sent to 
buy books needed for the School Library. 

"While this report is small, we are glad to be able to say that 
the Church Periodical Club work has been growing during the 
past few months, and it is earnestly hoped that at the end of 
this year all the various branches will be doing active work. It 
has been said of the club : 

"The Church Periodical Club is a society through which 
magazines, books, cards, and pictures are sent out all over the 
world to those who need them. It offers opportunity for service 
to al,l in the Church who have any wish to serve. The C. P. C. 
is for every one in the Church ; its work is so varied that there 
are few, indeed, who cannot do something for it. It is your 
organization, and without your help it could not do its splen- 
did and most necessary work." 

When we realize that every magazine in our homes can be 
used to great advantage and can bring enlightenment and 
pleasure to those who need it most, and also when we realize 
that there are so many different phases to the club that every 
one in each parish can serve it in one way or another, then 
we see how great an opportunity for service lies open to us in 
this field. For those who can give money, there are always 
urgent calls for books for libraries in the universities and 
colleges of the Mission Field. For those who subscribe to 
periodicals, there is the p,lea to have them forwarded each 
month. This is the chief work of the club, and in this connec- 
tion there has come a special appeal from headquarters that 
more Church papers be offered, as there is an increasing request 
for them. Then there is always a place in hospitals, institu- 
tions and homes around us for books of all kinds and maga- 
zines which can be passed on when read by us. 

"The neighbors whom you can serve through the C. P. C. 
are found, not only from Maine to California, but from Liberia 
to Tokyo, and from Alaska to the Philippines. They are of 'all 
sorts and conditions of men.' Some of them are clergymen 
and missionaries in isolated posts and the people among whom 
these work. Some of them are in hospitals, in prisons, in 
almshouses and orphanages; others are so,ldiers in distant army 



The Woman's Auxiliary 29 

posts and sailors on long voyages. A great many of them are 
just individual neighbors scattered all over this country and in 
far-away corners of the world : women on lonely farms, men 
isolated by the snows of the long Alaskan winter, invalids shut 
in by pain and weakness. But, one and all, they need 'some- 
thing to read.' " 

It will be of interest to you to know that in answer to an 
appeal from our Diocesan officers to the Executive Secretary of 
the C. P. C, a Lectern Bible has been promised by the club for 
the new Episcopa.l Church at Albemarle, IN". C. 

Mary M. Hoke, C. P. C. Correspondent. 



REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

Since our last annual meeting I have requested that the 
Prayer Partnership Plan be carried on in this Diocese by the 
method used first by the District of Mecklenburg — i.e., each 
branch in each district should write to and pay special atten- 
tion to its Prayer Partner for one month, in rotation with the 
other branches in that district, while the whole district is asked 
to pray for her regularly. The missionary is not expected to 
answer all these letters, but any letter received from her should 
be sent to all the branches in the district. 

Nearly all the districts have adopted this p.lan, and I ask 
that those who have not will do so as soon as possible. I also 
ask that each district chairman will appoint a special chairman 
for this plan (as has the District of Edgecombe), whose duty 
it will be to attend to the details and keep the importance of 
the plan before all the branches in her district. 

May I suggest that in writing to the missionaries we make 
it plain that we need their help to increase our interest in the 
mission field and that we need their prayers? If we can gain 
their spirit, God's Kingdom wi.U come. 

A personal contact with the workers in the field and those 
who stay at home must be established. Miss Lindley devised 
this plan for that purpose. Let us, with the help of the Holy 
Spirit, renew our efforts to make it a success in North Carolina. 

Laura June Alston, Chairman. 



30 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 



REPORT OF GIRLS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY 

As President of the Girls' Friendly Society of the Diocese 
of JNTorth Carolina, I feel that it is a privilege to say a few 
words about the Friendly to this representative body of women, 
the Woman's Auxiliary. 

The Girls' Friendly Society is the Church's organized effort 
and purpose to reach every girl, whatever her creed or race, 
at as early age as possible, to induce her to pledge herself to 
strive for the best things in life — spiritual, intellectual and 
social — and to help her attain them. 

The Girls' Friendly Society was founded in England fifty-one 
years ago by Mrs. Townsend, who saw the need to band together 
girls and women for mutual aid and help, sympathy and 
prayer. It was organized in this country two years later, and 
we will celebrate our fiftieth anniversary in 1927. 

Think of the Christian lives, character and service of over 
60,000 girls and women banded together, not only to be, but to 
do — to be the highest type of Christian womanhood and to do 
for others for the Glory of God. It is here that we women of 
the Church should realize our responsibility and opportunity 
to serve the girls of our Church and all girls, for, you know, 
membership is open to girls of all denominations. An oppor- 
tunity is thus afforded to the Church to expand its influence in 
the community, for girls cannot attend the weekly meetings of 
the Friendly without being inspired by the beautiful and im- 
pressive service of the Church. 

You women have so much to give. A seed planted brings 
forth an hundredfold, and so your influence on girls will bring 
forth an hundredfold — nay, much more. We budget our money; 
why not budget our personality ? There is not a talent you have 
that is not needed in the Friendly, as we have various depart- 
ments in it: Missions (last year we gave $33,507), Social 
Service (giving over $45,000 last year), Literature and Social 
Amusement ; so you women who have not lost your youthf ulness 
and ability to understand young girls can do a wonderful work 
as leaders of these girls. The responsibility is yours. 

We have in our Diocese seven branches which are doing 
splendid work, the one here in Rocky Mount especially. A 



The Woman's Auxiliary 31 

year or two ago they made $100 and gave it to the Rector for 
the parish; so you see we are doing work for the parish as well 
as Missions and Social Service. 

Many of you may not know that we have a Girl's Friendly 
Lodge in Raleigh, where a girl can get board and lodging for 
$7 a week. If at any time any of you know of a girl coming 
to Raleigh who wants a home, send her to the Lodge, where 
she will be well taken care of and chaperoned. We are most 
fortunate in having a house-mother, Mrs. Portia McClenaghan, 
who has the happy faculty of understanding girls, and they 
love her. I wish you could see the nice letters which Mrs. 
McClenaghan receives from the girls who have been there ; you 
would then understand the home atmosphere which pervades 
the Lodge. Every girl's birthday is celebrated by a birthday 
cake which is made by one of the directors of the Lodge. 

Now, ladies, if you haven't a branch of the Friendly in your 
parish, I want you to talk to your Rector as soon as you get 
home and organize one. Is there any girl that does not need 
the cardinal principles of the Friendly — Purity of Life, Duti- 
fulness to Parents, and Faithfulness in Work and Thrift? 
Mrs. J. H. Cordon, President, 

G. F. S., Diocese of ISToi'th Carolina. 



32 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 



TREASURER'S REPORT 



REPORT ON AUDIT 
From January 1, 1924, to December 31, 1924 

To President and Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary to the 
Presiding Bishop and Council, Diocese of North Carolina. 

Pursuant to request of your Treasurer I have audited your records 
of Receipts and Disbursements for the fiscal year ending December 31, 
1924, and submit herewith report, consisting of "Statement of Receipts," 
"Statement of Disbursements" and "Reconcilement of Cash on Hand." 

Certain deposits made in January and March, 1925 and pertaining 
to 1924 accounts had not been credited by the bank at the date of audit. 
These will appear on bank statement for April, 1925 and Supplemental 
Statement of the "Cash Balance" to date is made a part of the report. 

Cash deposits for the year 1924 exceeds Receipts, as entered, in 
amount of 834.68. This average in the cash, $34.68, has been credited 
to Central Fund Account. This may explain, in part, any discrepancy 
that may be noted in the amount credited to a particular Branch, or 
Branches. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. C. Todd, Public Accountant. 
Tarboro, N. C, April 25, 1925.

RESOLUTIONS 

The following resolutions were adopted at the Annual Meeting, 1925. 
Resolved, That our delegates to the Triennial be given authority to 
meet as an Executive Committee of the Provincial Synod. 



In comformity with the request of the Executive Committee of the 
Women's Legislative Council made at its final session during the meeting 
of the Legislature, that the same program of legislation that was presented 
this year be endorsed by each organization represented in the Council 
for presentation before the 1927 General Assembly, we hereby endorse 
the program and promise to use our best efforts to further these impor- 
tant measures. 

Resolved, That the offering on the Intercessory Day at the Epiphany 
be taken for Dr. A. W. Tucker's Insurance and "At the disposal of 
Mrs. A. W. Tucker." 

Resolved, That according to Article IX of the Constitution, this body 
formally adopt the Amendment to the Constitution "that the District 
Chairmen shall be members of the Executive Committee of the Woman's 
Auxiliary." 

Recognizing the fact that the Woman's Auxiliary is Auxiliary to the 
National Council, and that the responsibility for raising the apportion- 
ment should be shared by the women of the Church as well as by the 
men, therefore be it 

Resolved: (a) That a Committee shall be appointed (or elected) in 
each branch of the Woman's Auxiliary to assist the Rector and the Parish 
Treasurer in raising the apportionment. 

(b) That the Chairman of this Committee shall request the Parish 
Treasurer to notify her whenever the payments to the Nation-Wide 
Campaign do not equal the apportionment, and shall bring this deficit 
to the attention of the members of the Auxiliary. 

(c) That the Committee shall then with the advice of the Rector and 
in cooperation with the Parish Treasurer endeavor to raise the money 
due from that Parish (or mission). 

(d) That Copies of this resolution be sent to every branch of the 
Auxiliary. 

Resolved, That on our pledge list we have a fund at Bishop Penick's 
disposal. 



40 Thirty-seventh Annual Report 

Resolved, That the Woman's Auxiliary to the Diocese of N. C. assume 
the privilege and pleasure of providing the sum of S600.00 for the 
support of Miss Lillie Haines Hill, who is doing such splendid work at 
St. Andrew's Mission. 

Moved and carried that lists of pledges for Auxiliary Special be sent 
each District Chairman and they take up the matter with the Branches 
who have not pledged. 

It is our earnest conviction that the bringing of international peace 
and goodwill is the most mementous problem before the world today, 
and that no efforts to obtain peace can be effective which are not based 
on the education of the individual. In view of the fact that the branches 
which have pursued during recent months the course of study recom- 
mended by the Presiding Bishop and Council have had their faith in the 
righteousness of Peace and in the possibility of the abolition of war greatly 
strengthened and deepened; we therefore recommend the further study 
of constructive methods of obtaining Peace to all branches of the Auxiliary, 
and urge that before next October they devote further time and effort 
to the study of this vital subject, in order that the women of the Church 
as a body may add their influence to the effort that the General Con- 
vention will certainly make towards this end.

PRAYERS FOR USE IN AUXILIARY MEETINGS 

♦Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known 
to all nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for His dear 
sake. Amen. 

Fob Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with 
such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost 
parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. 

This, and all things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

Fok Noontide, Daily 

Lord of the Harvest, send forth men full of faith and of the Holy 
Ghost as laborers into Thy harvest; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Noonday Pbayee fob Missions 
Blessed Saviour, who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may look 
unto Thee, and be saved ; through Thy merits and mercies, who 
livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever One 
God, world without end. Amen. 

Daily Pbayeb 
O God, for as much as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct 
and rule our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Fob Bible Study Classes 

O God, our Father, Who of Thy Goodness hath given us a Bible 
to be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, help us, we beseech 
Thee, to study this Bible for the sole purpose of learning Thy Will 
concerning us. Help us to understand and remember what we study, 
and help us to be obedient to Thy teaching for Jesus Christ's sake. 
Amen. 

Fob the United Thank Offebing 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 



*To be said in unison. 



Seventh Annual Repokt 



everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service ; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Fob Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service ; to those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Social Service 

Almighty God, Who hast created man in Thine own image, grant 
us grace to contend fearlessly against evil, and to make no peace 
with oppression ; and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help 
us to employ it in the maintenance of justice among men and nations, 
to the glory of Thy Holy Name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Prayer Partnership 

Almighty God Who didst call holy women to be helpers and workers 
in Thy service : bless, we pray Thee, this Thy servant whom Thou 
hast called to a like ministration. Bestow on her the gifts of wisdom 
and sound judgment, of simplicity and singleness of heart. Sustain 
her in all her labor of love. May she speak peace to troubled hearts 
and bring many souls into the joy and liberty of the Gospel. Be Thou, 
O Lord, her guide in doubt, her strength in weariness, and her 
comfort in sorrow. Inspire her with Thy gracious promise that 
though the sower may go forth weeping, bearing precious seed, he 
will come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him. Grant this 
for the sake of Him Who went about doing good, Thy Son Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Supply Department 

O God, our Heavenly Father, Who hast offered us the privilege of 
giving even a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple "to 
the little ones" needing our thought, enrich us with sympathetic 
attention to the needs of others. Teach us, we pray Thee, the true 
fellowship of believers, wherein the personal need of the one is to 
become the warm interest of the many, and make us ready to recog- 
nize the obligations of the common bond of the faith in Thee. Bless 
the gifts which Thou hast put into the hearts of the members of 
Thy Household to make, and bless the lives of those who receive 
our gifts, with all spiritual blessing. 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 



Grant that we may be so touched by Thine own unspeakable gift 
of salvation that with generous hearts we may joyfully go on Thy 
errands, ready always to assist others who may need our ministering 
mercies. 

We pray Thee so to bestow the benediction of love in the hearts 
of all in Thy Holy Church that each in vocation and ministry may 
truly and godly serve Thee, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. 

Foe Our Missionaries 

O Lord Jesus Christ, who didst charge thine apostles that they 
should preach the Gospel in every nation ; prosper, we pray Thee, 

all missions at home and abroad (especially ) ; 

give them all things needful for their work, making them centers 
of spiritual life, to the quickening of many souls and the glory of 
Thy Holy Name. Support, guide and bless the clergy who are called 
to labor in these parts of Thy vineyard ; give them grace to witness 
to the faith ; endue them with burning zeal and love ; make them 
faithful under all disappointment and persecution, that having 
turned many to righteousness they may themselves win a crown of 
everlasting glory, being found Thy faithful servants, who livest and 
reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, One God, world without 
end. Amen. 

Offering of Life 

Almighty God who hast built Thy Church upon the foundation 
of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the 
head-corner stone : touch our hearts with such a love for Thee that 
by no word or example may we stay the feet of our children willing 
to serve Thee in the Holy Church, at home or abroad. And fill us, O 
Merciful Saviour, with such a spirit of consecration that we may 
bless them as they go : the heralds of the Cross. We ask this through 
the intercession of our High Priest, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

IMPORTANT NOTES 

1. See Constitution and By-Laws on pages 56-62. 

2. The Feast of the Purification is the annual Corporate 
Communion day for the Woman's Auxiliary of the National 
Church; and the Feasts of St. Andrew, the Epiphany, the 
Annunciation and the Transfiguration are the special Inter- 
cessory Days for the Diocese. Please observe these days. 

3. The special prayer for use before and at the time of the 
election of officers may be found on page 4. 

4. Note carefully Article IX of Constitution. 

5. Article VII of the Constitution reads in part, "A branch 
to have voting privileges must have paid the Central Fund." 

6. Article VIII, Section 3, reads in part, "From the amount 
contributed, according to this scale, the Treasurer shall turn 
over one-half to the Forward Movement," this amount to be dis- 
tributed according to the needs as seen by the Presiding Bishop 
and Council. Inasmuch as this organization is Auxiliary to 
the Presiding Bishop and Council, this money will go to the 
general fund, therefore any amount a branch may wish to go 
for diocesan objects should be designated from the remaining 
half of the branch's contribution. 

7. Send all money, except the United Thank Offering and 
money for Supply Department, to Mrs. R. B. Davis, 425 Tar- 
boro Street, Rocky Mount, Treasurer. Books close for the year 
December 31, 1926. 

8. Article VIII of the Constitution explains the letter placed 
by most branches in the list of parish branches and their 
officers. Where there is no letter the branch either did not enter 
the scale, which every branch should feel free to do or nOt do as 
seems best to its members (a surprisingly large number, how- 
ever, did follow the new plan), or it did not divide its gifts in 
a way to approach anywhere near the place in the scale the 
amount given entitled it. (At least half must go to the Forward 
Movement.) It seems fairer to place no letter by a branch 
in a case where $600, for instance, had been given, less than 



The Woman's Auxiliary 9 

$250, however, going undesignated, because if a letter had been 
used it would have been C. Whereas if $300 or more of this 
$600 had been left undesignated — given to the Forward Move- 
ment — the branch's letter would have been A. 



FORM OF BEQUEST 

I give, devise, and bequeath to the Domestic and Foreign 
Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the 
United States of America, for the use of the Society, $ 

If it is desired that the bequest should be applied to some 
particular department of the work, there should be substituted 
for the words, "For the Use of the Society," the words "For 
Domestic Missions," or "For Foreign Missions," or "For Work 
Among the Indians," or "For Work Among Colored People," 
or "For Work in Africa," "For Work in China," etc.

Resolution of Courtesy 

Unanimously passed at the last session of the Woman's 
Auxiliary Convention 

Resolved: That the delegates to the Woman's Auxiliary Convention 
of the Diocese of North Carolina, assembled in St. Philip's Church, 
Durham, N. C, unanimously record their sincere appreciation for 
all the courtesies and kindnesses extended to them by this hospitable 
parish, by the rector, the choir and organist, the local Branches of 
the Woman's Auxiliary, by the friends of St. Philip's congregation 
and other citizens of Durham who have opened their homes and 
contributed to the comfort of the delegates in manifold ways, the 
press of the city, the neighboring parish of the Chapel of the Cross, 
Chapel Hill. For these special evidences of warm-hearted hospitality 
and for unnumbered acts of kindness, we record our grateful apprecia- 
tion. 

THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

This, our first meeting after the Triennial, must be a very 
important one. At this time we start out on another three years' 
work with new vigor, interest and responsibility. 

"The Message" sent by our Executive Board to the National 
Council was adopted by your representatives of the Woman's 
Auxiliary in New Orleans as "our own" Message. 

"We have dedicated ourselves anew to our Saviour" and must 
strive "to give proof in our own lives" our belief in His power 
to strengthen us. And further, we have pledged "to try to 
awaken the women of the Church." 

Let us carry this message to every woman in this diocese. 
Throughout several of the districts "The Message" was carried 
by "The Pilgrimage of Prayer." Prayerful preparation was 
made and every branch was visited and devotional meetings were 
held. More than that, isolated Church women were visited who 
joyfully received the "Message," and now (though unable to 
attend meetings and, sometimes, even the Church service), have 
the "Little Blue Box" and a real part in the work of the 



16 Seventh Annual Report 

Auxiliary. I hope some such, plan will be carried out through 
every district in our diocese. 

I remind you that a resolution was passed by you a year 
ago pledging, as members of the Auxiliary, to keep yourselves in- 
formed as to whether our parishes, or missions, are meeting 
their budget quotas, and offering ourselves to the clergy and 
vestries to do all we can towards that end. 

By resolution in JNTew Orleans "we are dedicated to the pay- 
ment in full of all general Church quotas." 

Please study carefully "The Church's Program" and the 
Minutes of the Triennial. Then we shall all know just what 
"Budget Quota" and "Advanced Work" mean, and what is asked 
of our diocese. 

A church building for deaf mutes, here in Durham, has been 
chosen as our Diocesan Advanced Work for this triennium. 
Of the $15,000 necessary for the building the Executive Council 
asks that the members of our Auxiliary raise $3,000 during the 
next three years. Our own Executive Committee recommends 
to you that we assume $3,000 for this "Advanced Work" and 
$1,000 for the "Corporate Gift." Miss Emma Hall is the chair- 
man for these funds. The Executive Council also asks us to 
give $100 a year towards the expenses of the Carolina Church- 
man. Please first read the Carolina Churchman each month, 
and second, send in to me articles of interest for the Woman's 
Auxiliary page. 

I commend again to your use "The Calendar of Daily Bible 
Readings" and also "The Prayer Leaflet." Let us read and pray 
each day, together, the same words and gain the strength that 
comes from such concerted effort. 

It is reported that only four or five branches have kept the 
Intercessory Days during the past year, sending in their offer- 
ings. 

These four days are set apart for a Corporate Communion 
of the Auxiliary, with special intercessions. I need not remind 
you what an earnest observance of these days might mean to 
us. And on these days the offerings are designated for special 
objects, all near to our hearts. Let us try in each branch to 
keep these days this year. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 17 

I hope, through Mrs. Delaney's report and the committee on 
"Work with Colored Women," you will be especially interested 
in doing what you can to strengthen the Auxiliary among the 
colored parishes and missions throughout our diocese. 

Because of the great help that has come to some of our 
branches through the use of printed programs for the year's 
work, a committee has been formed to prepare an outline of such 
a program. This will be printed in The Annual Report and is 
offered as a helpful suggestion. 

One district last year made an effort to see that all members 
of the Auxiliary have family prayers, and grace at meals. I 
wish this effort might be extended through all the districts. 

Along with these important things it seems trite to ask that 
you answer all letters promptly. One of our officers wrote me 
last week, "The hardest thing about Church work is to get 
people to answer letters." Please take that message home with 
you and feel it your strict duty to answer all Auxiliary letters 
promptly. 

Let us feel deeply our sense of stewardship and give of our 
means prayerfully. The field is so great, the opportunities are 
so many. 

Let us go forward hopefully, and joyfully, trusting, while we 
pray and work earnestly, our Lord will give the increase. 

It is a happiness to be your president, working for the spread 
of His Kingdom with such splendid women, who give to their 
president such hearty and loving support. 

May God bless us in our work. 

Louisa A. S. Way, President. 
(Mas. Warren W. Way.)

18 Seventh Annual Report 

At the September Committee Meeting it was voted to purchase 
a mimeograph, the Auxiliary purchasing one-half interest, the 
Secretary the other half. This affords opportunity for the 
President to send copies of Miss Lindley's quarterly letter to 
each branch, as well as other important communications. Miss 
Lindley's January letter was mimeographed and mailed to every 
branch president. The President's letter concerning the Annual 
Meeting was mailed to each branch in March. 

The program for the Educational Institute, which Mrs. 
Mazyck held at Christ Church, Raleigh, February 12th, was 
done by your Secretary. 

Early in January 81 report blanks were sent to the branch 
presidents. In April 10 more were mailed to those who had 
not answered. Seven branches have never replied. The member- 
ship reported is 2,005, and the following information was re- 
quested by the Church Missions House : 

Prayer Groups 49

Mimeographed copies of the minutes of the March Committee 
meeting were mailed to each member. 

One hundred and eleven programs of the Annual Meeting have 
been mailed to all branch presidents, members of the Executive 
Committee and speakers. 

All other necessary correspondence has received attention. 
Mary Hilliaed Hinton, Secretary.

six branches.

To be accounted for $ 798.25 

The value of Material and Supplies exceeded cash by .$ 485.84 

The value of sewing and work on garments amounted to 150.26 



Total $ 636.10 

Adding this to the total of Box Work 4,128.27 



Makes grand total for the year of $4,764.37 

A box of second-hand clothing was sent from Supply Room, 
valued at $119.15 but this is included in reports from branches. 

The work of the past three years has been marked by a con- 
tinued growth in the volume of things accomplished, and in- 
creased interest in this Department among the branches. A 
large percentage of the branches contribute the average of fifty 
cents or one dollar per member for carrying on Box Work in the 
Diocese. 

A Supply Room has been furnished in Durham, 1ST. C, and 
the work in connection with it is all organized, and bears 
fruit in greater service by this Department. The members of 
nearby branches come to this Supply Room, and cut the gar- 
ments, and they are then sent to other branches to be made. 
Thus the cutting and sewing have given a personal contact and 
an individual touch to the many members who have given their 
personal service in love to the filling of Mission Boxes and this 
has brought an added interest. 



20 Seventh Annual Report 

Personal boxes are filled by branches which do not assist 
with the Mission Boxes, and these branches get the personal 
touch by corresponding with the Missionaries to whom the boxes 
are sent. 

This year our personal boxes were sent to Rev. and Mrs. 
Stallknecht, Del Rio, Texas. Their family consists of a girl 
and two boys. On Easter Monday a letter was received from 
Mrs. Stallknecht from which I quote in part as follows: 

"Having three children in school requires many things we are 
not able to buy. We are all so pleased when the Missionary 
boxes arrive, and I want to thank you all for the money you 
have sent me. It is needless to tell you that it came in answer 
to prayer." 

Our Missionary Boxes for 1926 were for Advent Mission, 
Columbia, Tenn., and were sent to Mrs. Mary B. Hine. In 
acknowledging receipt of them she writes : 

"I have never in all my past experience seen such wonderful 
boxes. They combine just what I am sure these people need. 
The contents of these boxes seem almost an answer to prayer. 
The children from the factory town will all come to me in the 
morning and I will have an Easter dress for each little girl and 
a shirt for each boy, and they will be so happy. I am so happy 
to have all these things to give them for I know their necessities, 
and they look to me to help them." 

The work of the Supply Room is in its infancy. "We have 
laid the foundation for larger things yet to be accomplished. 

As I retire from the Chairmanship of this Department, I 
desire to express my appreciation of the sympathetic cooperation 
of those who have given their aid in this service — a real service 
to those who are in need. May God continue to bless you in 
this work. And as I pass on my duties to my successor it is 
with the earnest hope that she may receive during her term of 
office as rich a blessing and as hearty cooperation of the branches 
as has been accorded to me.

UNITED THANK OFFERING DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA 
FOR THE YEAR 1925 

Amount received during the year 1925 $ 6,290.19 

Amount with interest, for 1923 and 1924 (previously re- 
ported) 10,604.43 

Interest on above items for 1925 382.91 

Received from Colored Workers 340.60 

Total amount placed on altar at Triennial in New Orleans $17,618.13 

The best known and best loved work in the Cburcb today is 
that of the United Thank Offering. 

What is the purpose of this offering ? 

It is a woman's work for women. Every woman and young 
girl in the Church is given a little blue box, and asked to place in 
it an offering when she is thankful. The funds thus obtained 
supply the needs of our own women who so bravely face the 
trials and dangers of the Mission Field. 

As Bishop Tuttle said: "The United Thank Offering is an 
outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace," the 
little blue box representing the material side of this holy work. 

In this day of multiple organizations, it is a comfort to feel 
that there is one phase of the Church work which is conducted 
by each individual, with responsibility to no one but God Him- 
self. The stimulus comes not from public meetings, but from 
daily contact with our dear Lord. May we reverently call this a 
little society of two, the individual giver, and the blessed Master ? 
In the ordinary society, there are assessments and dues, but 
here we have the joyful exhilaration that comes from the 
voluntary thank offering. 

The isolated woman and the invalid are no longer helpless. 
Through fervent prayers and secret gifts, the wonderful privilege 
is given them, quietly and alone in their own homes, to aid in the 
advancement of the Kingdom of Almighty God. 

Whether the loving offering is made systematically, or is 
given spontaneously and ecstatically — 

"All service ranks the same with God — 
With God whose children, best and worst, 
Are we : there is no last nor first." 



22 Seventh Annual Report 

Somehow there is a sense of inadequacy in the merely spoken 
word of thanks. The language of love is giving, and the in- 
dividual secret gift is anointed with the oil of gladness above 
its fellows. I believe that the woman who takes her part in the 
United Thank Offering is helped in her own soul, and will find 
a truer happiness in her religion, and a deeper reality in the 
sacramental life of the Church. 

Let us dedicate ourselves afresh to this work. We are thank- 
ful for our daily blessings, beautiful sunshine, showers, health, 
friends, food, raiment, escape from accidents, relief from pain. 
Do our little blue boxes daily receive our expression of this 
thankfulness ? 

Let our slogan be : To serve those who serve. 

Our aim : A thank offering when we are thankful. 

There is an honor roll for the Parishes whose offerings are in- 
creased each year, but the ideal honor roll is the one in which 
every woman and girl understands the purpose of the United 
Thank Offering, and has a share in it. 
I pray God's blessing on our effort. 

Alice Winston Spruill, Custodian. 
(Mrs. F. S. Spruill.) 

REPORT OF TREASURE AND TRINKET FUND 

Madam President and Members of the Auxiliary: 

Since our last meeting I have received from St. Paul's, Louis- 
burg, $6.00, from Mrs. J. S. Turner, Weldon, one package of 
gold spectacle frames, and from Mrs. E. G. Landis, Henderson, 
one package of gold and silver. 

We have in addition at H. Mahler's Sons 113 dwt. of gold, 
and 6^4 ounces of silver. This is enough gold to make a 
chalice the size of those we have had made of silver. A few 
more contributions of gold would give us enough for a paten. 
The cost of making chalice and paten would be $106.00. Our 



The Woman's Auxiliary 23 

President and Bishop Cheshire would approve our giving these 
two pieces to the Church for the Deaf in Durham. 

If each branch will send me a small contribution of gold, and 
a contribution of silver which may be sold to pay for the making 
of the pieces, we can have this gift to present to the church on 
All Saints' Day, or perhaps sooner.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON THE OFFERING OF LIFE 

The two phases of work of this committee are : 

First — To endeavor to keep the names and addresses of all 
workers from the North Carolina Diocese and, in particular, to 
try to keep in touch with the volunteers. 

Second — To secure funds for Diocesan Delegates to Summer 
Conferences, and to keep a list of the delegates sent. 

I have sent my list of the workers from this diocese to the 
Missions House to be verified and will have it in time to be 
printed in our Annual Report. 

We have with us at this meeting such splendid representatives 
from the Mission Field, Dr. Tucker, Mr. Cox, Miss Blacknall 
and Archdeacon Drane, that I feel that they are a report from 
the Offering of Life. 

The opportunity of hearing and knowing these faithful work- 
ers should certainly draw us into closer contact with the Mission- 
ary work of the Church. 

In response to cards sent to the different parishes, concerning 
Summer Conferences, we find that the sum of about $100 has 
been given for this purpose. Since you give this money you 
should have a voice in where and who should be sent from 
this Diocese. You will have an opportunity in a few minutes 
to hear from the delegates you sent last year, where they went, 
what they did, and the result. Surely we are going to send girls 
from St. Mary's ! 



24 Seventh Annual Report 

But are there not many workers in our home diocese who 
would also he worthy and helpful delegates to one of our con- 
ferences ? 

Should we not, now, decide to send a delegate to the Con- 
ference at Valle Crucis ? The Valle Crucis Conference, heing 
under the guidance of the Church exclusively, claims our 
loyalty, and is in the mountain section where many of our 
missions are situated. 

I need not tell you of the St. Mary's girls who are present, 
for they will speak for themselves, but I would like to say 
that we have never sent St. Mary's girls to Conferences as 
delegates that have not proven great assets to the Church, even 
tho' not going as missionaries. They have proven good wit- 
nesses in colleges, business and homes. 

We especially wish you to know that the Auxiliary does not 
pay all of the expenses of these delegates. The Blue Ridge 
delegate is given $25.00 ; the remainder of the expenses, which is 
between $25.00 and $30.00, is paid by the delegate herself. To 
the Sewanee delegate $50.00 is given, and she herself pays the 
remainder, about $30.00. 

The St. Mary's delegates are elected by the student body. 
Our last year's delegates, who are present, are : 

Miss Mela Royall, Goldsboro; 

Miss Margaret Bullitt, Chapel Hill; 

Miss Sylbert Pendleton, Fort Benning, Ga. 

Is there any work more beautiful and helpful for our Com- 
mittee to undertake than sending delegates from our own, dear 
Church School, St. Mary's, and seeing the results each year 
as they influence their comrades and go into our different 
parishes ! 

I now earnestly request an open discussion on two questions : 

A delegate from the Diocese at large, and 
The Conference at Valle Crucis.

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 

In many ways my report is very gratifying, and in many 
ways, disappointing. The Branches, as a whole, have failed to 
send in written reports, yet by hearsay, by verbal reports and 
by personal observation your Secretary is aware of the good 
work that has been done by the women of our Diocese in the 
line of Christian Social Service. 

Last October a letter was sent to each branch, outlining a 
program and containing many requests. Most of these requests, 
your Secretary is confident have been complied with, but the very 
urgent request of sending reports promptly has been ignored. 

Many letters have been received, asking suggestions, and much 
work has been done by most of the Branches. Winston-Salem, 
Greensboro and Rocky Mount have done very constructive and 
tangible work in community uplift and public welfare. Religious 
services have increased in county homes and prison camps, and 
before our next Convention we hope that regular services will 
be held in every institution, county home and prison in the 
Diocese. Let us pray fervently that the right spirit may prevail 
in the hearts of the men who direct these institutions — when 
once the Christian spirit prevails all the ills and problems of 
social welfare will be solved. 

Many branches, in addition to their personal work, have ex- 
pended sums of money for hospital and sanatorium treatment. It 
is the desire of your Secretary that more of this will be done 
in the future. 

The most excellent work last year of Miss Lilly Haines Hill 
in Rockingham County shows us the crying need and the wonder- 
ful opportunity for our rural work. This year we hope to make 
the country mission our main objective, and with this thought 
in mind we have invited Dr. Branson to talk to us today about 
our country neighbors, and the Church's relation to them. 

There is a feeling of fear on the part of some of our women, 

that perhaps our Auxiliary, by becoming a member of the 

organization asking for remedial legislation, is slipping too much 

into politics. We pray God that His women may never become 

4 



26 Seventh Annual Report 

a political machine. But we must remember that Jesus taught 
us to attack the forces of evil in His name. In the prayer written 
for our daily use, we ask "that we make no peace with oppres- 
sion, that we reverently use our freedom, help us to employ it in 
the maintenance of justice among men and nations to the glory 
of Thy Holy name." 

We would have you hear in mind that the economic, social, 
and industrial world have become so organized that public wel- 
fare cannot function without law and order. The only way of 
obtaining this, however unfortunate it may be, is through the 
men who make our laws. 

Our women are doing splendid Christian social service work, 
even if they don't report it. Your Secretary has great faith in 
them and asks God's blessings upon them. 

Rosa W. Bulluck, Secretary. 
(Mrs. R. D. Bulluck.) 



REPORT OF EDUCATIONAL. DEPARTMENT 

Just one year ago this month I was chosen by the women 
of the Auxiliary to lead in our Educational Department. It 
is a tremendous responsibility. One is so poignantly conscious 
of one's limitations; and of the inability of any individual to 
properly, adequately, lead in this still unplowed field of Religious 
Education. "We seem to know so little, and (here's the rub) 
to ivish to know so little! How to stimulate and arouse an 
ardent, enthusiastic, desire for knowledge, seems to me our all 
absorbing task in a nutshell. 

In offering me the position of Educational Secretary for the 
Diocese of North Carolina the women of the Church have thrust 
upon me the grim, but exhilarating necessity to think. I know 
of no position in the Auxiliary where there is greater need for 
thought, constructive thought; and I now extend to every indi- 
vidual woman in the Diocese, a most cordial invitation to join 
me in this noble exercise ! Let us think together — Alone I can do 
nothing but the power of our united, concentrated, thought will 
work the miracle we so greatly need. — An aroused intelligence 



The Woman's Auxiliary 27 

alive to the glory and joy of making the world a brotherhood, 
each and every individual in that brotherhood worshiping and 
obeying our Lord Jesus Christ ! Ah ! is it not a consummation 
which would inspire the heart of the dullest, and most phleg- 
matic? And it is no idle dream, no fantastic vision of im- 
possible things. It was the reason for Our Lord's coming. 
"Christ for the World we sing, Christ to the world we bring." 
Yes, but we do not "bring," we simply sing. Our part in this 
divine undertaking is that ancient command, two thousand years 
unheeded, "Go, teach :" and when we awake to our responsi- 
bilities, the "Earth shall be covered with the knowledge of the 
Glory of God as the waters cover the sea." 

Now a word as to specific things accomplished in this past 
year. We held one Educational Institute in Raleigh, which we 
hope and believe was most successful. Individuals here and 
there all over the Diocese are awakening to the necessity of 
serious study — we intend that at least one such Institute shall 
be held every fall, preferably before Advent, so that Educational 
Secretaries all over the Diocese may get together to discuss 
plans and methods for the year's work. This we feel is a step 
in the right direction. An organized effort to arouse Educa- 
tional Secretaries to an appreciation of their duties and privi- 
leges. Erom the 78 report blanks sent out, I received 39 replies; 
and mark this, the best reports were by no means those from 
the largest, best equipped, parishes. I was amazed and delighted 
to find isolated, small, groups here and there reading more 
broadly, reading because they were vitally interested, and not 
from a strict sense of duty; study groups being formed, where 
none existed before, discussion groups (the ideal method) being 
tried for the first time in many rural places. It makes one take 
heart, for we can see the dawn of a brighter, better, day in 
Educational work. 

Einally I am rejoiced, after carefully studying this great 
question of leadership, to find that a really good leader puts 
the responsibility on others! If, therefore we succeed in these 
three years, the success shall be yours; If we fail — but there is 
no such word in the vocabulary, nor in the annals, of the women 
of North Carolina. Let me close with a quotation from one of 



28 Seventh Annual Report 

our great Educational leaders, "If Christ is the Light of the 
World, then Christian Religious Education is the World's 
hope." 

Grace Hunter Mazyck:, Secretary. 
(Mrs. H. deC. Mazyck.) 



REPORT OF THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club of the Diocese of North Carolina 
is made up of thirty-four branches, about half of which are 
now active. The report for the year 1925, is necessarily in- 
complete, due to the fact that only nine of these branches sent 
in statements of their year's work. The work reported is as 
follows : 

Current periodicals sent regularly 75 

Donors of above current periodicals 63 

Odd magazines sent 1,228 

Books, theological and secular 20 

Tracts and catechisms 8 

Money spent $4.00 

Among the institutions in this Diocese aided by the Church 
Periodical Club are Watts Hospital, Durham; Old Ladies' 
Home, Durham; County Home, and other institutions, Bur- 
lington ; Penitentiary, Raleigh. 

At the meetings of the Church Periodical Club held in ISTew 
Orleans at the time of the General Convention, it was particu- 
larly urged that the various branches of the Church Periodical 
Club direct their attention to local work, since the present postal 
rates make it impractical and often impossible to send away 
all our magazines ; and so we are asked to find out the needs for 
magazines and books in our own communities and in neighboring 
localities, and supply these needs to the best of our ability. In 
a number of places in this Diocese, I am sure, a great deal of 
this local work is being done, but not reported through the 
C. P. C, and I particularly want to ask that in such places 
a C. P. C. Secretary be appointed to keep track of the amount 
of work done so that we may have an accurate report each year. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 29 

Another point stressed at New Orleans was that, while the 
C. P. C. functions, in many cases, through the Woman's Auxil- 
iary, there is work for every member of each parish. The aid 
of the children of the Sunday School and Service Leagues may 
be enlisted in collecting and distributing magazines and in 
making scrap books for hospitals and children's homes; and all 
the men and women of the parish may be asked to give their 
magazines or books, and to seek out those to whom these gifts 
would bring enlightenment and pleasure. 

Of course, where it is possible, we are still urged to forward 
our magazines to distant lands, where the need for them is ever 
growing, and to contribute money for libraries in our mission 
fields. Letters of appreciation and encouragement come from 
all parts of the world to let us know that our work is indeed 
worth while, and to urge us on to renewed activity in this 
important field of service. 

Mary M. Hoke, C. P. C. Director. 

Woodburn Road, Raleigh. 



REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

Madam President and Members of the Auxiliary: 

As it has been impossible for me to attend the district meet- 
ings, I have done what I could by correspondence and, through 
the kindness of the Carolina Churchman, by published articles. 
I have received reports for this meeting from the districts of 
Edgecombe, Granville, Guilford, Mecklenburg, Orange, and 
Wake. Forsyth has no chairman. 

The report from Edgecombe is an account of the Prayer 
Pilgrimage last November, which Mrs. Green, our Chairman, 
helped to make a success. The value of this to the Prayer- 
Partnership is easily recognized. She had written to all her 
branches, asking them to appoint Prayer Partnership Secre- 
taries, but had not received replies to her letters. ("That we 
may realize the duty of answering letters" would be a good 
clause to put in our Auxiliary litany.) 

Mrs. Cooper, of Granville, reports occasional letters and cards 
sent Miss Whitley and prayers offered. 



30 Seventh Annual Report 

Mrs. C. W. Banner, of Guilford, has only recently been ap- 
pointed. She has responded to every suggestion about the work 
and attended promptly to her correspondence. She reports one 
branch, Leaksville, as having a Branch Prayer-Partnership 
Secretary, and she is trying to arouse an interest in this plan 
in all her branches. 

Mrs. E. K. Powe, of Orange, reports a Prayer Partnership 
Secretary in every branch in her district, letters and cards sent 
Miss Whitcomb and prayers offered. 

Mrs. J. S. Gaul, of Mecklenburg, reports that her six branches 
"are cooperating very nicely" and to their prayers are added 
gifts and cards and letters for Mrs. Coffin, especially was she 
remembered by lovely gifts at Christmas. 

Miss Ellen Bowen was appointed Chairman of Wake in 
November. She assigned the special Prayer Partnership work 
to St. Anne's Branch, Good Shepherd Church, Raleigh, for 
December. They responded cordially with personal prayers 
and personal gifts and cards of greeting. She wrote to every 
branch in her district, asking them to appoint Branch Prayer 
Partnership Secretaries, and also to Deaconess Smith. This 
closed her report for 1925. 

I have received no reply to my requests for reports from the 
districts of Richmond and Rowan. 

With this report closes my term of office. I have not suc- 
ceeded in what I wanted to do, but I bespeak for my successor 
your earnest cooperation and prayers. 

Laura June Alston, 
(Mrs. G. W. Alston.) 
Chairman of the Prayer Partnership Plan. 
Raleigh, K C, April 19, 1926. 

REPORT OF GIRLS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY 

It is a privilege to speak to the Woman's Auxiliary on any 
subject but especially so about the Girls' Friendly Society. 

As active Churchwomen it is perhaps not necessary to tell 
you what the Girls' Friendly Society is, but there may be some 
of you who do not clearly understand the work and purpose of 



The Woman's Auxiliary 31 

this Society, for the benefit of these, I would say that the 
Girls' Friendly is a Church organization to unite women and 
girls in a fellowship of prayer and service for the upholding of 
the highest standard of Christian womanhood and for the Glory 
of God. It endeavors to reach every girl at an early age, that 
she may be led to pledge herself to strive for the best things 
in life — spiritual, intellectual, physical and social — and to help 
her attain them. 

We women of the Church must realize our responsibility and 
opportunity to serve the girls of our Church and all girls, for 
girls of all denominations are welcomed into the Friendly. 

Is there any girl that would not be benefited by the cardinal 
principles of the Friendly — Purity of Life, Dutifulness to 
Parents, Faithfulness in Work, and Thrift? 

In our Diocese there are five branches and several Candidates' 
classes which are doing splendid work in the five fields of 
service — the parish, the community, the diocese, the nation 
and the world. Our Lenten work came under the world field for 
it was making layettes for the missions. These layettes, by 
the way, were sent out by the Woman's Auxiliary. 

Our Diocese has an unique accomplishment of which we are 
very proud — our Girls' Friendly Lodge in Raleigh. If at any 
time any of you know of a girl coming to Raleigh who wants 
a home, send her to the Lodge, where she will be well taken 
care of and chaperoned and can get board and lodging for only 
$7.00 a week. We are most fortunate in having a housemother, 
Mrs. Portia McClenaghan, who has the happy faculty of under- 
standing girls, and they love her. 

Good work as we have done, it is not as much as we could 
do if you women took a more active interest in the Girls' 
Friendly. Our cry is for leaders. It is the Church's oppor- 
tunity — will you women answer the call? 

Mes. James H. Coedon, President, 
G. F. S. Diocese of North Carolina. 

White Oak Road, Raleigh.

TREASURER'S REPORT 



REPORT OF AUDIT 

From January 1, 1925, to December 31, 1925 

To President and Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary to the 
Presiding Bishop and Council, Diocese of North Carolina. 

Pursuant to request of your Treasurer I have audited your records 
of Receipts and Disbursements for the period beginning January 1, 1925, 
and ending December 31, 1925. During this period the account was 
handled by two Treasurers. From January 1st to May 5th by Mrs. C. M. 
Parks and from May 5th to December 31st by Mrs. R. B. Davis. 

On May 5th Mrs. Parks turned over to Mrs. Davis the sum of $500.00 
and later Mrs. Davis paid for Mrs. Parks outstanding checks amounting 
to $60.00, which were included in Mrs. Parks' disbursements, but paid by 
Mrs. Davis after Mrs. Parks' account had been closed. Mrs. Davis also 
paid to Mrs. Parks $53.62 for overdraft, after Mrs. Parks' account had 
been closed. It appears, therefore, that the amount turned over to Mrs. 
Davis by Mrs. Parks should have been $386.38 instead of $500.00. 

The item of $500.00 is shown as received by both Mrs. Parks and 
Mrs. Davis due to two Treasurer's accounts. The item as appearing in 
Mrs. Davis' account is simply a journal entry or transfer from collections 
already made by Mrs. Parks.

38 Seventh Annual Report 

RESOLUTIONS 

The following resolutions were adopted at the Annual Meeting, 1926. 



Resolved, That all suggestions embodied in the President's Address 
be adopted and faithfully carried out. 



Resolved, That the President of each Branch of the Auxiliary use 
every means in her power to assist Mr. Jackson in collecting the 
unpaid pledges to the Thompson Orphanage Building Fund. 



Resolved, That the gold and silver on hand in the Treasure and 
Trinket Fund, with such additional gold as may be sent in, be used 
to make the paten and chalice for the church for deaf mutes in Dur- 
ham, and such silver as may be sent to be used to pay for the same. 



Resolved, That after sending our St. Mary's girls to Conferences, a 
delegate from the Diocese at large be sent to Valle Crucis. 



Resolved, That at all meetings of the Auxiliary the Auxiliary prayer 
be said in concert. 



Resolved, That all money to be reported must be in the hands of the 
Diocesan Treasurer of the Woman's Auxiliary before December 31st. 



Resolved, That the Parish Branches send in reports to District 
Chairman of work done by January 15th, so there shall be no 
duplication by overlapping. 



Resolved, That $100.00 be paid from the Diocesan Treasury of the 
Auxiliary to the Carolina Churchman every year. 



Whereas, The women of the Auxiliary to the Presiding Bishop and 
Council of the Episcopal Church are interested in and working for the 
welfare and good of all people everywhere, 



The Woman's Auxiliaby 39 

Therefore, be it Resolved, That we urge the Senate Committee, now 
hearing the argument in favor of prohibition, that no change be made 
in the Volstead Act as now written, and that adequate support 
be given to the enforcement of the law and the education of the 
people. 



Resolved, That the delegates to the annual meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary of the diocese of North Carolina, assembled in St. Philip's 
Church, Durham, desire to reaffirm the resolution adopted by the 
Woman's Auxiliary at their Triennial meeting in New Orleans : 

Resolved, That the delegates to the Triennial of the 
Woman's Auxiliary of 1925, assembled in New Orleans, 
place on record our conviction that war as an institution 
for the settlement of international disputes by brute 
force allied to skill and cunning and lying, is incom- 
patible with the mind of His Church, and that the 
causes of war are ignorance, prejudice, selfishness and 
greed, especially in the national economic and other 
corporate aspects of life, which must be uprooted from 
the hearts of men ; 

We, Therefore, Pledge ourselves to carry out a con- 
structive program of education for peace, and to use 
our best efforts and our strongest influence toward the 
promotion of international and inter-racial good will. 

"Lord, lift us out of private mindedness and give us public souls 
to work for Thy Kingdom by daily creating that atmosphere of a 
happy temper and generous heart which alone can bring the Great 
Peace." 

(Prayer of Bishop Eackett, 11th Century.) 



In resolving to retain our place on the "Legislative Council of 
Women" we have made ourselves responsible for raising $150 as our 
part of the expenses of this Council during the coming Legislature.

Eighth Annual Report 



PRAYERS FOR USE IN AUXILIARY MEETINGS 

* Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him known 
to all nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for His dear 
sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with 
such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost 
parts of the eartn in answer to Thy call. This, and all things which 
are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

For Noontide, Daily 
Lord of the Harvest, send forth men full of faith and of the Holy 
Ghost as laborers into Thy harvest ; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Noonday Prayer for Missions 
Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may look 
unto Thee, and be saved ; through Thy merits and mercies, Who 
livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever One 
God, world without end. Amen. 

For Peace 

O Thou, in Whose hand are the hearts of Thy creatures ; shed 
abroad Thy peace upon the world. By the might of Thy Holy Spirit 
quench the pride, the anger and greed which cause man to strive 
against man and people against people ; lead all nations in the ways 
of mutual help and good will, and hasten the time when the earth 
shall confess Thee indeed for its Saviour and King, and no evil 
deeds of man shall defile Thy glorious creation ; through Jesus Christ 
cur Lord. Amen. 

Daily Prayer 

O God, for as much as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct 
and rule our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Bible Study Classes 
O God, our Father, Who of Thy Goodness hath given us a Bible 
to be a lamp to our feet and a light to our path, help us, we beseech 



'To be said in unison. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 



Thee, to study this Bible for the sole purpose of learning Thy Will 
concerning us. Help us to understand and remember what we study, 
and help us to be obedient to Thy teaching for Jesus Christ's sake. 
Amen. 

Fob the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou has given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; to those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Fob Social Service 

Almighty God, Who hast created man in Thine own image, grant 
us grace to contend fearlessly against evil, and to make no peace 
with oppression and, that we may reverently use our freedom, help 
us to employ it in the maintenance of justice among men and nations, 
to the glory of Thy Holy Name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Peayeb Partner 
Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and workers 
in Thy service : bless, we pray Thee, this Thy servant whom Thou 
hast called to a like ministration. Bestow on her the gifts of wisdom 
and sound judgment, of simplicity and singleness of heart. Sustain 
her in all her labor of love. May she speak peace to troubled hearts 
and bring many souls into the joy and liberty of the Gospel. Be Thou, 
O Lord, her guide in doubt, her strength in weariness, and her 
comfort in sorrow. Inspire her with Thy gracious promise that 
though the sower may go forth weeping, bearing precious seed, he 
will come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him. Grant this 
for the sake of Him Who went about doing good, Thy Son, Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Eighth Annual Report 



For Supply Department 

O God, our Heavenly Father, Who hast offered us the privilege of 
giving even a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple "to 
the little ones" needing our thought, enrich us with sympathetic 
attention to the needs of others. Teach us, we pray Thee, the true 
fellowship of believers, wherein the personal need of the one is to 
become the warm interest of the many, and make us ready to recog- 
nize the obligations of the common bond of the faith in Thee. Bless 
the gifts which Thou hast put into the hearts of the members of 
Thy Household to make, and bless the lives of those who receive 
our gifts, with all spiritual blessing. 

Grant that we may be so touched by Thine own unspeakable gift 
of salvation that with generous hearts we may joyfully go on Thy 
errands, ready always to assist others who may need our ministering 
mercies. 

We pray Thee so to bestow the benediction of love in the hearts 
of all in Thy Holy Church that each in vocation and ministry may 
truly and godly serve Thee, through our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. 

For Our Missionaries 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst charge Thine apostles that they 
should preach the Gospel in every nation ; prosper, we pray Thee, 

all missions at home and abroad (especially ) ; 

give them all things needful for their work, making them centers 
of spiritual life, to the quickening of many souls and the glory of 
Thy Holy Name. Support, guide and bless the clergy who are called 
to labor in these parts of Thy vineyard ; give them grace to witness 
to the faith ; endue them with burning zeal and love ; make them 
faithful under all disappointment and persecution, that having 
turned many to righteousness they may themselves win a crown of 
everlasting glory, being found Thy faithful servants, Who livest and 
reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, One God, world without 
end. Amen. 

Offering of Life 

Almighty God, Who hast built Thy Church upon the foundation 
of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the 
head-corner stone : touch our hearts with such a love for Thee that 
by no word or example may we stay the feet of our children willing 
to serve Thee in the Holy Church, at home or abroad. And fill us, O 
Merciful Saviour, with such a spirit of consecration that we may 
bless them as they go : the heralds of the Cross. We ask this through 
the intercession of our High Priest, Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

IMPORTANT NOTES 

1. See Constitution and By-Laws on pages 81-84. 

2. The Feast of the Purification is the annual Corporate 
Communion, and the Feasts of St. Andrew, the Epiphany, the 
Annunciation, and the Transfiguration are the special Inter- 
cessory Days for the Diocese. Please observe these days. 

3. The special prayer for use before and at the time of the 
election of officers may be found on page 5. 

4. Note carefully Article IX of Constitution. 

5. Article VII of the Constitution reads in part, "A branch 
to have voting privileges must have paid the Central Fund." 

6. Article VIII, Section 3, reads in part, "From the amount 
contributed, according to this scale, the Treasurer shall turn 
over one-half to the Forward Movement," this amount to be dis- 
tributed according to the needs as seen by the Presiding Bishop 
and Council. Inasmuch as this organization is Auxiliary to 
the Presiding Bishop and Council, this money will go to the 
general fund, therefore any amount a branch may wish to go 
for diocesan objects should be designated from the remaining 
half of the branch's contribution. 

7. Send all money, except the United Thank Offering and 
money for Supply Department, to Mrs. R. B. Davis, 425 Tar- 
boro Street, Rocky Mount, Treasurer. Books close for the year 
December 31, 1927. 

8. Article VIII of the Constitution explains the letter placed 
by most branches in the list of parish branches and their 
officers. Where there is no letter the branch either did not enter 
the scale, which every branch should feel free to do or not do as 
seems best to its members (a surprisingly large number, how- 
ever, did follow the new plan), or it did not divide its gifts in 
a way to approach anywhere near the place in the scale the 
amount given entitled it. (At least half must go to the Forward 
Movement.) It seems fairer to place no letter by a branch 
in a case where $600, for instance, had been given, less than 



10 Eighth Annual Report 

$250, however, going undesignated, because if a letter had been 
used it would have been C. Whereas if $300 or more of this 
$600 had been left undesignated — given to the Forward Move- 
ment — the branch's letter would have been A. 



FORM OF BEQUEST 

I give, devise, and bequeath to the Domestic and Foreign 
Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the 
United States of America, for the use of the Society, $ 

If it is desired that the bequest should be applied to some 
particular department of the work, there should be substituted 
for the words, "For the Use of the Society," the words "For 
Domestic Missions," or "For Foreign Missions," or "For Work 
Among the Indians," or "For Work Among Colored People," 
or "For Work in Africa," "For Work in China," etc.

a Quiet Hour, conducted by Right Reverend Arthur C. Thom- 
son, D.D., Bishop Coadjutor of the Diocese of Southern Vir- 
ginia, at 5 :00 p.m. in St. Luke's Church, Salisbury, Tuesday, 
April 26, 1927. 

At 8 :00 p.m. Evening Prayer was conducted in St. Luke's 
Church. Bishop Cheshire extended greetings from the diocese, 
and Rev. Mark H. Milne, Rector of St. Luke's, welcomed the 
Auxiliary to the parish. Bishop Cheshire introduced Bishop 
Thomson, who spoke on "The Church's Mission." 

Holy Communion was celebrated at 7 :30, Wednesday morn- 
ing, April 27th, by Bishop Cheshire, assisted by Bishop Penick

The business session began at 9 :45 a.m. in St. Luke's Church, 
the President, Mrs. Way, presiding, speaking a few words of 
greeting. Prayer was offered by Archdeacon Hardin. Since 
the Nominating Committee had most important work to per- 
form, the President read the names of the Committee, as fol- 
lows : Mrs. Ross M. Sigmon, chairman, Mrs. W. D. Burwell, 
Mrs. Haywood Foxhall, and announced that names for the 
nominees for President were to be handed to this committee.

Mrs. Lyman A. Cotten welcomed the Auxiliary most cordially 
to St. Luke's, and gave an interesting historical sketch of this 
parish, established 175 years ago. The original portion of the 
present edifice was erected about a century ago, largely through 
the efforts of one woman. Mrs. Frank M. Martin graciously 
responded to Mrs. Cotten's words of welcome. 

The President read her address. 

Miss Katherine Hilliard moved "That we accept the report 
of our beloved President and adopt the suggestions contained 
therein." Carried. 

The Secretary's report was read. 

Mrs. R. B. Davis, the Treasurer, requested that she be per-

ing message from Liberia, to Archdeacon Hardin for his invaluable 
services, to the press of the city, to the Rector, organist, choir,

18 Eighth Annual Report 



PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

This is my last annual address as your President. Our new 
President will have plans to lay before you during the coming 
year. There are, however, some which I must leave with you, 
and on which you will like to take action during this meeting. 

Because we are "dedicated to the payment in full of all gen- 
eral Church Quotas," and have put ourselves on record at the 
Annual Meeting in Rocky Mount "to cooperate with the Rector 
and Parish Treasurer in raising the money due" from our own 
individual parishes and missions, I call your attention to the 
present financial condition of this diocese. Many parishes and 
missions have not accepted the obligation of paying the amount 
of budget quota asked them by our diocese. In consequence, the 
work of the diocese has been seriously curtailed, and if, as 
happened last year, even the money promised is not sent in, a 
further cut will be necessary. 

I beg you to give this your prayerful consideration. 

Because of this condition, your Executive Committee has 
promised, with your sanction, that we shall take as our responsi- 
bility the payment of the salary of Miss Betty Gordon for the 
remainder of this year, 1927. This responsibility will begin 
May 1st, and the amount for the 8 months will be $400. 

I feel sure you will consider it a privilege to have some share 
in the work of this beloved diocesan missionary. 

The Bishops' Crusade has brought to us a great religious 
experience. I feel you had a large part in preparation for the 
Crusade, and, surely, we must feel a deep responsibility in our 
share of the deeper religious life and consecrated work which 
must now follow. Let us stand loyally by our leaders and at 
home and abroad do our part more devotedly than ever before. 
Only thus can we prove to our Lord and ourselves what the 
Crusade has really meant to us. 

I would call your attention again to the necessity for sending 
prompt replies to all letters, and the filling out and returning 
promptly of all reports and pledge cards. Those of you who 
send out such letters know how quickly and efficiently the work 
could be accomplished if replies came in on time. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 19 

It was resolved by the Auxiliary, at the meeting of the Synod 
in Jacksonville last November, "That the members of the church 
in the Province of Sewanee do all in their power to contribute 
the sum of $5,000 during the current triennium to take care 
of the needs of the Hodgson-Emerald Memorial Hospital at 
Sewanee, Tennessee." 

While your Executive Committee does not feel that we should 
now begin an active campaign for this hospital, I feel sure you 
will wish, before this triennium has expired, to have some share 
in this work. I ask you, therefore, to bear it in mind. 

And now I want to thank you, each one, for the loyal and 
loving cooperation and support I have received during the three 
years of my office. The admiration I feel for you and the 
splendid way in which you work, the loving friends I have 
made, the blessing of the spiritual communion we have held 
together, all have brought to me, in my work with you for the 
Master, real joy. And my life will be always richer for it. 

And so I feel sad that I soon am to be your President no 
longer. But I bespeak for my successor the same hearty sup- 
port, and more, as the work enlarges under her. 

And so with warmest love I say, God bless you, every one. 
Mrs. Warren W. Way, President. 

SECRETARY'S REPORT 

Notices of the March and September meetings of the Execu- 
tive Committee were mailed to each member of the committee. 
The minutes were taken and recorded by the Secretary, then 
mimeographed copies were sent to each member of said com- 
mittee. 

In July the Annual Report was mailed individually to every 
Diocesan and Branch officer, chairmen of committees and dis- 
trict chairmen. 

Miss Lindley's quarterly letter has been mimeographed and 
sent each quarter to the Executive Committee (which, as you 
know, includes the Diocesan officers and district chairmen), and 
all Branch presidents. In this way much work was saved the 
district chairman and enabled the President, Mrs. Way, and 
Miss Lindley to be in direct touch with each Branch in this 
Diocese. 



20 Eighth Annual Report 

Tlie President's letter was mailed some time before the Annual 
Meeting to the Branch presidents. This naturally concerned 
that meeting. 

In December, report blanks were mailed to all Branch presi- 
dents. The replies came in very slowly. Your Secretary con- 
tinued to send report blanks to the Branches. Finally, at the 
March Executive Committee Meeting the district chairmen were 
urged to see that this vitally important information reached the 1 
Secretary at once. Three Branches have failed to regard this 
request. 

Two new Branches of the "Woman's Auxiliary have been 
organized during 1926, viz. : St. George's, Woodleaf, and St. 
Gabriel's, Selma. 

The following information, requested by the Church Missions 
House, has been received from the various Branches throughout 
the Diocese of ]^"orth Carolina, through the report blanks : 

Number of Members 2.1S5 

Number of Prayer Groups 82 

Number of Corporate Communions beld 170 

Number of Quiet Days, Retreats, or otber Devo- 
tional Meetings 167 

Number of subscribers to Prayer Leaflet 368 

Parisb Councils 10 

Parish Units of Church Service League 13 

Delegates to Summer Conferences 28 

The programs for the Annual Meeting were mailed to all 
Diocesan officers, Branch presidents, chairmen of committees, 
District chairmen, and speakers. 

All other correspondence assigned by our President to your 
Secretary has received attention. 

Mary Hilliard Hinton, Secretary. 

REPORT OF SUPPLY DEPARTMENT 

The total for the Supply Department for the year 1926 
amounted to $4,916.08. The work done by the Branches came 
to $4,589.58. This included: $665.35 paid in pledges; $317.63 
worth of second-hand garments sent to Mr. Henry Cope Colles 
for his work in the mountains of Virginia; $425.22 sent in 



The Woman's Auxiliary 21 

personal boxes to missionaries ; boxes sent to Thompson Orphan- 
age amounting to over $2,000; and boxes sent to various fields, 
both Diocesan and Foreign. Through the Supply Room there 
were 653 garments made, the sewing valued at $326.50. 

On January 1, 1926, there was a balance on 

hand of $ 83.43 

Received from pledges 665.35 

Total receipts $748.78 

This was disbursed as follows : 

Paid out : 

For Supply Room $ 30.00 

For postage, phone, insurance, and express 24.93 

For printing 12.25 

In checks to Missionaries 143.67 

For materials for Mission Boxes 378.91 

Total $589.76 

Balance on hand January 1, 1927 $159.02 

Because of the splendid work done by Mrs. W. A. Devin in 
reorganizing the Supply Department, when I came into office 
last May the members of the Auxiliary understood the new plan 
clearly, and were loyally supporting it. In four of the dis- 
tricts : Edgecombe, Granville, Richmond, and Orange, every 
Auxiliary helped the Box Work in some way. In other dis- 
tricts only a few failed to respond. 

In 1926 boxes to the value of $616.87 were sent to General 
Missions by different branches of the Diocese. As these boxes 
had not been assigned by Mrs. Wade, Supply Secretary, at the 
Missions House, we received no credit for them. "I am very 
sorry," she writes, "but hope another year you can guide this 
interest so that you can use it on your regular assignment." 
Will you help do this? The allotments for 1927 have all gone 
forward, except a part of the large mission box, which goes to 
Porto Rico. The garments are ready, but the packing has been 
unavoidably delayed. It is a pleasure to tell you that because 
of our Supply Room the Auxiliary has been able to help 



22 Eighth Annual Report 

St. Agnes' Hospital, Raleigh, N. C, since the fire, by sending 
sheets, pillow-cases, blankets, towels, and other articles. Sev- 
eral of the branches have helped, also. All of this work has 
been done with Mrs. Wade's consent, and we will receive due 
credit. 

I wish to express our gratitude and appreciation to St. 
Philip's Church, Durham, for its splendid support; for Mrs. 
Mason, the efficient head of the Supply Room; for the room 
itself; and for the excellent work done by St. Margaret's and 
St. Philip's Auxiliaries in cutting and auto service. 

From the people whose lives you have touched through your 
loving work for the Supply Department come letters of deepest 
appreciation, and each one repeats, "Please thank the women 
of the Diocese of North Carolina for us." I wish I might read 
you all of these, for then you would feel sure that this work for 
His children is blessed by the Master. 

Mrs. R. H. Lewis, Chairman.

REPORT OF TREASURE AND TRINKET FUND 

Since our last meeting I have received $1.25, sent to me by 
the Rev. Thomas Duck, of Atlanta, Ga., for Miss Habesham, 
formerly of Clarksville, Ga., now of Portland, Oregon. This 
makes the amount of money on hand $7.25. 

Packages of gold and silver in small amounts have been 
received from Albemarle Mission Woman's Auxiliary. Two 
packages from Mrs. R. B. Coit, Greensboro. Acknowledgment 
of a package credited to the Woman's Auxiliary, Leaksville, and 
reported at the Annual Meeting of 1926, was later found to 
have been sent by Miss Ann McCary, of Leaksville. One ring 
from Mrs. J. S. Holmes, Raleigh, and one from Mrs. E. W. 
Hall, Weldon, complete the list of contributions received. 



Eighth Annual Report 



The silver and other metal sent by Mrs. W. L. Powell of 
Pittsboro was so mixed with ashes that it could not be used. 

We have at H. Mahler's Sons enough gold for the chalice, the 
size of those we have had made of silver. We still lack gold 
for the paten. I hope each branch will contribute a small 
amount of gold, and also a contribution of silver, which may be 
sold to pay for the making of the pieces, the cost of which will 
be $106. Let us complete this service before the next Annual 
Meeting, and give it for the use of the Mission to the Deaf 
before the church is completed. No plated metal can be used. 

Mrs. George W. Alston. 

Ealeigh, N. C, April 25, 1927. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE OFFERING OF LIFE 

The work of this committee during the past year has accom- 
plished practically the same result as in the year before. 

In the fall a letter was sent to each parish auxiliary asking 
that the Blue Ridge Fund be contained in the yearly budget. 
This has been complied with, and your Treasurer has about one 
hundred dollars on hand, to be used for diocesan delegates to 
summer conferences. 

Another letter explaining the duties of the recruiting secre- 
taries was sent to each District Recruiting Secretary. 

The St. Mary's girls which you sent to the summer conference 
at Blue Ridge have proven the value of their training by 
returning to the school and giving to a large group of church 
girls something of their instruction and inspiration. Though 
we may not see concrete results of these delegates, we may have 
the satisfaction of knowing that we are casting seed in fertile 
soil, and that in time we will feel in the life of our auxiliary 
the effects of their work. It is to be regretted that you will 
not be given the opportunity at this meeting to hear the report 
of the girls who went last year, but Salisbury is most too far 
away for them to come. 

This year we are planning to send two St. Mary's girls to 
Blue Ridge, and two others to Camp Penick. 

I am heartily in favor of sending the St. Mary's girls to Blue 
Ridge and to Camp Penick, but in doing this alone, we are not 
making the summer conferences a vital part to our auxiliary. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 25 

Our summer couferences are growing, and they have increased 
in number and size and are broader in the instruction and 
Church training that is given. I feel that we, as an auxiliary, 
should give more appreciation to these conferences and 
strengthen them with our attendance; and I do not feel that it 
is out of place in this report to urge each auxiliary to have a 
parish delegate to some one of the conferences. The benefits 
which you will receive will make the cost seem small. 

I have had mailed to each recruiting secretary a complete 
program for the Blue Ridge Conference for this summer. The 
date of this conference will be June 28-July 8. The cost of this 
conference, not including traveling expenses, is $25. Bishop 
Bratton will again be there and conduct his class in Bible Study. 

The Valle Crucis Conference is July 4th to 16th, and is 
different from the Blue Ridge Conference in that it is primarily 
for the church people of the Episcopal Church, and is an Adult 
Teacher Training Conference. 

In giving to you the list of our missionaries, I am happy to 
tell you that Miss Frances Gasele, who has been one of our 
volunteers, has accepted a call to the San Juan Indian Mission, 
Farmington, New Mexico, and has left for that field. I have 
no further additions to the list of last year. 

Our Foreign Workers are: 

Rev. Francis Cox, American Church Mission, Soochow, China. 

Miss Mary A. Hill, American Church Mission, Zangzok, 
China. 

Miss Mary Wood McKenzie, Cape Mount, Liberia, West 
Africa. 

Rev. and Mrs. H. O. Nash, Apartada 27, Pachuca, Mexico. 

Mrs. A. W. Tucker, St. Luke's Hospital, Seward Road, Shang- 
hai, China. 

Our Domestic Workers are : 

Miss Bessie Blacknall, St. Mark's Mission, Nenana, Alaska. 

Miss Susan Smith, Christ Church Mission, Anvik, Alaska. 

Rev. Leicester Fault Kent, Cordova, Alaska. 

Miss Adelaide Smith, Nenana, Alaska. 

Miss Mary A. Ramsaur, U. T. O., Great Falls, S. C. 



2Q Eighth Annual Report 

Miss Ellen T. Hicks, St. Luke's Hospital, Ponce, Porto Rico. 

Miss Belle Graves, Valle Crucis, N. C. 

Miss Lillie Hill, St. Andrew's Mission, Rockingham County, 
JNT. C. 

Miss Elizabeth Gordon, Spray, N. C. 

Mr. John R. Edmunds, Christ School, Arden, ]NT. C. 

Miss Frances Gasele, Earmington, New Mexico. 

Miss Laura Carroll, Marshall, Va. 

May we daily pray for these workers, and may we remember 
our faithful band who have passed away : 

Rev. W. Hoke Ramsaur, Africa. 

Miss Catherine Bourne, Porto Rico. 

Miss Mary E. Horner, Valle Crucis. 

Two prospective volunteers are : Miss Mary Roberts Russell, 
Winston-Salem, N". C, and Miss Elizabeth McLaughlin, Cleve- 
land, K C. 

May I ask that you all, and especially each recruiting secre- 
tary, help in keeping our list of workers up-to-date, and make 
known any additions which you are aware of. I hope to have 
the revised list printed and sent to you at an early date for 
distribution. 

I cannot close my report without expressing the pleasure and 
gratitude which we all feel in having with us Miss McKenzie. 
She brings to us a real message and makes our mission in Liberia 
very near to our hearts. 

Sophronia Cooper, 
Chairman Committee on the Offering of Life. 

REPORT OF THE WORK WITH COLORED WOMEN 

Madam President and Members of the Auxiliary: 

In making my report as chairman of your Committee on 
"Work with Colored Women," I most sincerely regret : first, that 
owing to unforseen circumstances, I have not been able to visit 
the colored congregations of our diocese, and secondly, that I 
cannot give this report in person. 

I did make a beginning by visiting with Mrs. Manly and the 
Rector and some members of the Auxiliary of St. Paul's Church, 
Winston-Salem, the colored church of that city. We had a 



The Woman's Auxiliary 27 

short prayer service and an interesting conference with the 
Rector, who promised that a branch of the Auxiliary should be 
organized among his people. 

I have also had talks with the wife of our Suffragan Bishop, 
the Eector of St. Ambrose Church, Raleigh, and the President 
of the Colored Branch of the Auxiliary in Tarboro, relating to 
the work of the Auxiliary and of their especial needs. 

With the aid of Mrs. Long, I have communicated by letter 
with the other colored parishes and have received answers from 
Rocky Mount, Wilson, Warrenton, Roanoke Rapids, Pittsboro, 
Louisburg, Henderson, Statesville, and Charlotte. In each case 
appreciation was expressed of our efforts at cooperation and an 
earnest desire shown that we should try to help them in material 
ways. Several letters reported visits from the presidents and 
members of our own branches, who had also shown interest by 
gift of money, by conferences and by uniting with them in 
Bible reading and prayers, and in Mission Study. After read- 
ing these letters, we conclude that some of their pressing needs 
are: 

A simply arranged program for their meetings and personal 
aid in making these programs alive and interesting. 

Suitable books and reading matter for their parish and church 
schools. 

Money or materials for a fine cooking school which is being 
conducted in St. Luke's Parish, Tarboro. 

And the continual need of our sympathy and prayers. 

Kate Cheshire, Chairman. 

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL, SERVICE 

In the year 1926 Christian Social Service was rich in oppor- 
tunities and blessings, and God smiled on his women in the 
Diocese of North Carolina, and gave them vision and strength 
to meet, in a measure, their responsibilities. 

Some of us scored excellent, many of us scored good, and yet, 
as the Bishop said in his Advent message, "I am sure few of us 
feel that we did all we could" ; as a whole, the work was splendid. 

First of all, I wish to acknowledge grateful appreciation of 
our retiring President. I feel that the Master gave me a special 



28 Eighth Annual Report 

privilege in calling me to the work during her administration. 
Her sweet and sympathetic personality, her words of encourage- 
ment, and her wise and prudent counsel will linger with me as 
one of the happiest experiences of my life. 

I also wish to thank most heartily the District Secretaries — 
they have been most helpful. I have endeavored to carry on the 
work by districts, and have urged branches to report through 
them. 

The districts of Richmond, Edgecombe, Orange, and Meck- 
lenburg have reported 100 per cent. I wish time permitted 
of a detailed report of the good work of so many branches, 
especially some of the smaller ones. 

The District of Rowan has done an outstanding piece of work 
by sending to Valle Crucis a young girl, just as she was about to 
stumble. Ideal Christian Social Service, saving the body, and 
better yet, saving the soul. 

The Auxiliaries in Charlotte have a wonderful opportunity 
in being able to minister to so many public institutions, includ- 
ing our own Thompson Orphanage. They have indeed stayed 
on their jobs, and not only have they continually gladdened the 
hearts of the children at the Orphanage, but have accepted their 
share of their responsibility toward the young girls and boys 
in their training and industrial institutions, and also their 
responsibility towards their hospitals and jails. 

Weldon, a comparatively small branch, for one month served 
hot lunch daily to more than twenty undernourished children, 
and then visited the homes of these children, and made a point 
of contact with the parents. 

Calvary Branch, Tarboro, furnishes eight teachers for the 
rural missions. 

The Auxiliaries of Durham have entered into a program of 
public welfare, and, best of all, one secretary writes : "We have 
caught the vision." Many branches have furnished milk for 
the undernourished and tubercular and worked with the delin- 
quent and neglected. 

Oxford has furnished layettes and comforts through the 
county nurse for country mothers. 

Henderson has held prayer meetings with the sick, who are 
denied the privilege of church services. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 29 



Louisburg is vitally interested and is entering into a program 
of social welfare. 

The mere fact that $900, less fifteen cents, has passed through 
the books of your Diocesan Treasurer indicates in a small 
measure the actual work done. Human service cannot be meas- 
ured in dollars and cents. Jails and prison camps have been 
visited and services conducted as never before. County homes 
have become our regular Sunday afternoon hostesses. 

We rejoice that Christian Social Service in the Diocese of 
North Carolina no longer means just second-hand clothing and 
a basket of food, however necessary these things are. In 1926 
we endeavored to concentrate on rural work. This was at- 
tempted, but was not carried on very successfully. We shall 
renew our efforts again this year, and in cooperation with the 
other departments of the Auxiliary and with the existing State 
agencies, try to serve the country folks in the most helpful way. 
Among those who need the care of the church, we find poverty 
and disease; we find the unadjusted boy and girl, and the un- 
married mother; we find the discharged prisoner waiting to be 
established in the society of good citizenship, or perhaps wait- 
ing for an opportunity to return to his former crime; we find 
helpless and neglected little children. We find them in the 
country just as much as we do in the city or small town. They 
need the care and guidance of Christian people. 

After carefully considering these problems and the oppor- 
tunity that awaits the church, as your Secretary it is my opinion 
that the only way to accomplish effectual rural work is through 
a whole-time Diocesan Christian Social Service Field Worker, 
and through this worker tie the countryside to the town church. 
I recommend this for your consideration. 

Mrs. R. D. Bulluck, Secretary. 

REPORT OF EDUCATIONAL DEPARTMENT 

One more year has passed in our Educational Work, and I 
think we can look back with some pride at the progress made. 
Women are interested at last ! There has been a deep and real 
awakening of the women of the church to the joy of knowledge, 
the joy of knowing the King's business. Religious Education 



30 Eighth Annual Report 

no longer seems vague, or meaningless, or worse — boring. We 
have come to see that Religious Education is not a mere accu- 
mulation of facts and figures (this, of course, is essential), but 
Religious Education is the development of our power to make 
right choices, and to establish right relationships. 

Our subject this year, "Rural Problems," proved intensely 
interesting. We urban people found to our amazement that the 
farming class forms, potentially, the strongest, most powerful 
class on this globe; and we must guard against thinking of 
agriculture simply as a means of food production. It has much 
to contribute, and has contributed much, to the mind, the char- 
acter, the art, and the religion of any nation. 

The problem of rural life in the U. S. A. is a complex one. 
It deals with the economic, social, and religious needs of over 
50,000,000 people. There are 4,000,000 Godless children, vir- 
tual pagans, in the United States. How to remove this dis- 
tressing condition is our chief problem. One thing we can do 
toward that happy end is to put an end to competitive religions. 
"Economic waste is the sin of the churches," says Galpin; 
$3,000,000 spent annually in keeping alive competing churches 
— this means that in small towns, and rural communities, there 
are from two to five Protestant churches, half supported, half 
attended, half alive, where one could minister acceptably, effec- 
tively, and successfully. Pitiful, and truly — the sin of the 
churches ! We have prayed for many hundreds of years for 
"Godly Union and Concord," but we have worked hard in the 
opposite direction. May our study this year so inspire us that 
we shall live more nearly what we pray. 

The practical things we have accomplished are as follows : 
One Diocesan Educational Institute, held in Winston-Salem, 
with Miss Laura Boyer as our leader, and your Educational 
Secretary as assistant. Eighty-one written reports were sent to 
the branches, and fifty-eight replies received — an increase over 
last year of twenty. This we feel is a most remarkable evidence 
of growth and interest, in one year. Your Educational Secre- 
tary has written 191 personal letters in regard to educational 
work and methods, and 24 postals; she conducted two Mission 
Study Classes, helped lead one institute, made eighteen ad- 
dresses to branches of the Woman's Auxiliary, and has answered 



The Woman's Auxiliary 31 

every letter within twenty-four hours after it was received dur- 
ing the past year. 

My prayer and my hope is that I shall be able to do much 
better work, during the coming year, in this important field of 
the Master's vineyard. 

Mrs. H. deC. Mazyck, Secretary. 

REPORT OF THE CHURCH PERIODICAL. CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club is a society through which maga- 
zines, books, cards, and pictures are sent out all over the world 
to those who need them. In the Diocese of North Carolina there 
are thirty-four branches, about half of which are active at the 
present time. The report for the year 1926 is incomplete, due 
to the fact that only eleven of these branches sent in statements 
of their year's work. The work reported is as follows : 

Current periodicals sent regularly 44 

Donors of above current periodicals 29 

Odd magazines sent 1,472 

Money spent $6.00 

As its name indicates, the Church Periodical Club was 
founded to provide periodicals, and though its scope has en- 
larged to cover other forms of printed matter, the forwarded 
magazine or paper has still been its principal asset, the one 
thing that could be offered freely to any who cared to receive. 
With the increase in postal rates two years ago, offers of maga- 
zines began to diminish, and many were discontinued on account 
of the cost of sending. This, of course, is unavoidable, but it is 
a most unfortunate situation, because many of our mission sta- 
tions and church organizations at home and abroad have come 
to depend largely on the Church Periodical Club for reference 
books and reading matter, and the need and opportunity for 
work along this line is rapidly increasing everywhere. So let 
us all remember this great need, and as soon as Congress has 
passed a bill bringing relief in regard to postal rates, let us take 
up this work with renewed zeal. 

In the meantime, a large amount of Church Periodical Club 
work can be done in our own communities if we will take inven- 



32 Eighth Annual Report 

tory of our local needs and try to fill them — in hospitals, orphan- 
ages, schools, and charitable organizations of every kind. 

The Church Periodical Club took an active part in the 
Bishops' Crusade, and, in addition to sharing in the general 
movement, the following are a few of the specific suggestions as 
to how the members and friends of the C. P. C. might be of use : 

1. See that any person in your own neighborhood who wishes 
a Bible or Prayer Book is supplied. 

2. Make a contribution to the I^ew York Bible and Common 
Prayer Book Society (a general society which distributes freely 
to the extent of its resources). 

3. Read, lend, or give to others such books as : "Personal 
Eeligion and the Life of Fellowship," "Realizing Religion," 
"Talking with God." 

4. Help to supply the clergy, especially in rural districts, with 
material in the shape of prayer cards or leaflets, and simple 
literature about the Church and the Christian life. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary M. Hoke, Director. 

REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

I regret more than I can say that I cannot be present at our 
annual meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary. It's always an 
opportunity and a privilege to attend these meetings, as well as 
an inspiration. 

The reports for the year are most encouraging. Prom the 
District of Edgecombe, Mrs. G. C. Green, chairman, reports 
that the interest in the Prayer Partnership Plan has increased 
in all of the branches, and that most of them have appointed 
secretaries, and that the Prayer for Prayer-Partner is used 
regularly. Mrs. Green's plans for the year include two very 
interesting objectives. One is a Prayer-Partnership Confer- 
ence, to be held in Weldon, to stimulate interest in the plan, and 
to put before them the real object of Prayer Partnership. This 
is a splendid idea, and I wish that each district might follow 
her plan. The other objective is to start a library fund for St. 
Agnes School Kindergarten, Kyoto, Japan. Miss Helen Dis- 
brow is the Prayer Partner for this district, and is an instructor 



The Woman's Auxiliary 33 

in the Kindergarten Department of St. Agnes School, where 
they are adding new buildings through the Corporate Gift, and 
Miss Disbrow has mentioned the need of funds for library. An 
objective of this kind is especially appropriate. 

Mrs. C. W. Banner, from the District of Guilford, is very 
active as chairman of that district, and splendid in stimulating 
interest in the Prayer-Partnership Plan. She writes that all 
the branches are using the Prayer for Prayer-Partner regu- 
larly. Members of every branch have written their Prayer 
Partner at regular intervals and at Christmas. They have 
also sent orders to the Craft Shop, conducted by St. Andrew's 
Mission, Porto Rico, where Miss Mildred Hayes, their Prayer 
Partner, is stationed. Miss Hayes writes that these orders are 
very much appreciated. 

Mrs. Edward K. Powe, from the District of Orange, reports 
that every branch has a corresponding secretary, that they have 
written Miss Whitcomb, their Prayer Partner, often, and have 
used the Prayer for her at all meetings and at home. 

Mrs. Leak from the District of Richmond reports that they 
have written Miss Nichols, their Prayer Partner and received 
letters from her. On last Easter they sent her a box from 
members of the Auxiliary in Wadesboro with a gift from each 
member. The Prayer for Prayer Partner has been used at the 
Auxiliary meetings. 

In the District of Wake, Miss Margaret Lee was appointed 
last spring to take Miss Bowen's place. There are twelve 
branches in this district and she has assigned each one a month 
in which to remember their Prayer Partner, Deaconess Emma J. 
Smith. She reports that each branch has used the Prayer at 
every Auxiliary meeting and they have written her letters and 
cards. St. Anne's Branch, Church of the Good Shepherd, Ral- 
eigh sent a beautiful box Christmas with personal gifts and 
cards. Another box was sent at Easter from one of the other 
branches. 

In the District of Mecklenburg, Mrs. W. A. Graham has a 
splendid report. There are six branches in this district and each 
one has two months during the year to remember their Prayer 
Partner, Mrs. Coffin at St. Michael's Mission, Wyoming. Each 
branch in the district has used the Prayer for her at all of 
3 



34 Eighth Annual Report 

their meetings. They have written her letters and several have 
sent magazine subscriptions. 

St. Peter's, Charlotte, prepared a special program on Mrs. 
Coffin and her Mission work among the Indians which was 
read at each Circle meeting of their Service League. Last 
Christmas a lovely box was sent by the district with gifts for 
Mrs. Coffin. She is most appreciative and writes often. 

This seems to me a splendid report from the Diocese and I 
believe that awaking to the fact that it is a real privilege to have 
these splendid workers in the Mission field for our Partners. 
When I was made Chairman last fall, I wrote to each one of 
these Missionaries who are our Prayer Partners for this Diocese, 
and it has been my great pleasure to hear from most of them, 
telling me of their interest in the Prayer Partnership Plan, and 
something of their work in the Mission Field — among them, 
Miss Helen Disbrow, St. Agnes School, Kyoto; Miss Bessie 
Blacknall, St. Mark's Mission, Alaska ; Miss Maude Whitley, 
University, 111.; Miss Anna Groff, St. Luke's Hospital, Shang- 
hai; Miss Maryland B. Nichols, House of Bethany, Liberia; 
and Mrs. Coffin, St. Michael's Mission, Ethete, Wyo. I wish 
that you could read these letters, they are splendid and show 
us better than anything else the success of this plan. 

Mrs. John S. Gaul, Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE GIRL'S FRIENDLY SOCIETY 

The Girl's Friendly is in its most useful, wholesome, and 
helpful stage, and deserves the attention and supreme interest 
of the Episcopal Church in every one of its Parishes. We have 
four active branches : one at Henderson, one at Hillsboro, and 
two in Raleigh; and the Girl's Friendly Lodge located in Ral- 
eigh, would be glad indeed if every church in the diocese would 
send a representative to visit our Lodge. Many of you do not 
realize the need for the Lodge, but if you could see this clean, 
comfortable Christian home — the House Mother, a lovely, Chris- 
tian woman who gives her life to this work that she loves, with 
an unceasing devotion — you would, I am sure, be inspired to 
aid in the great work that the Directors of the Lodge are so 
lovingly and unselfishly engaged in. The girls of the Lodge, 



The Woman's Auxiliary 35 

about twenty-five in number, quickly imbibe tbe spirit and regu- 
lations of tbe Lodge, and love tbe life tbere under tbe in- 
fluence, care and protection of tbe House Motber. Tbe Lodge 
needs and must bave tbe belp of tbe Parisb brancbes. 

Tbe Missionary work of tbe brancbes comes tbrougb tbe Wom- 
an's Auxiliary, and tbe making of baby garments filled tbeir 
Lenten work bours. I wisb to stress tbe necessity of every 
cburcb organizing a Girls' Friendly brancb. Tbe President or 
tbe Vice-President of tbe diocese will belp you to organize at any 
time. And you will find tbat your Girls' Friendly brancb meet- 
ings lend bappiness and belp to many girls of our Cburcb and 
otber denominations wbo never attend otber cburcb organiza- 
tions, and wbo usually prefer tbe meeting witb its program of 
prayer, pleasurable work, laugbter and song, to moving pictures 
or any otber form of amusement. And so, I again urge you to 
organize your brancbes readily, and if possible to bave a brancb 
for every churcb in tbe diocese before tbe end of 1927. And I 
also urge you to advise young girls wbo are coming to Raleigb to 
work, to make tbeir borne at tbe Lodge for tbeir own safety 
and welfare, and for tbe benefit and support of tbe Lodge. 
Remember tbat tbe Lodge belongs to tbe diocese and not to tbe 
Raleigb brancbes. 

Mrs. Gilbert Hat.

TREASURER'S REPORT 



REPORT OF AUDIT 
From January 1, 1926, to December 31, 1926 

To the President and Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary to 
the Presiding Bishop and Council, Diocese of North Carolina. 

Pursuant to request of your Treasurer I have audited your records 
of Receipts and Disbursements for the period beginning January 1st, 1926, 
and ending December 31st, 1926. During this period the account was 
kept by Mrs. R. B. Davis, Rocky Mount, N. C. I have carefully gone 
over all records of receipts and all vouchers showing disbursements and 
find them in balance. In the final summary of the reconciliation of bank 
balances, it was necessary to show both the Rocky Mount Savings and 
Trust Company and The National Bank of Rocky Mount, due to the 
fact that your account was transferred to The National Bank of Rocky 
Mount on December 31st, 1926, both banks showing balances and out- 
standing checks on that date. The balance of $502.00 on December 31st, 
1926, is deposited in The National Bank of Rocky Mount. 

Allen G. Spencer, Auditor.

44 Eighth Annual Report 



REPORT OP THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY OF THE 
COLORED CONVOCATION 

Madam, President and Members of the Auxiliary: 

Our Annual Meeting was held last August in All Saint's Mis- 
sion, at Warrenton. Twelve branches of the Woman's Auxiliary 
from the twenty mission stations in the Convocation made re- 
ports that showed that well organized and systematic work of 
some kind had been done throughout the year. It has been 
difficult to get written reports of the work and in order not to 
exaggerate we are not reporting anything that we are not abso- 
lutely certain of; for this reason it is possible that some of the 
work that has been done will not appear in this report. 

We have, tried to keep the women informed about the work 
of the Woman's Auxiliary by sending them copies of Miss 
Lindley's quarterly letters or such parts of them as were neces- 
sary to keep them in touch with the work the other women of the 
Auxiliary are doing. Five of these letters, and literature about 
"The Message," "The Corporate Gift," "The Bishops' Crusade" 
and Miss Matthew's "Four Meditations" have been sent to 
all the women of the twenty mission stations in the Convocation. 
Some of the branches report that the Intercessory Days have 
been observed and that they have had Corporate Communions 
when possible to secure the services of a priest. Five Quiet 
Days have been observed. Prayer groups have been organized 
by most of the branches. We are gradually getting the women 
interested in subscribing to the "Spirit of Missions" and in try- 
ing to get others to do so. We have made a special effort to see 
that every woman has a United Thank Offering box, and that 
she knows just what it means to have the privilege of giving 
in this special way. Two Prayer Partners have been assigned 
to us. We have written to them and a box of clothing has been 
sent to a small girl who was adopted by one of them. Last 
August a box of new clothing and ten dollars were sent to Mrs. 
Wade, for a school in Liberia. 

Charlotte 

St. Michael's Branch, Charlotte, reports that their Auxiliary 
is divided into three groups which meet once a week at the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 45 

homes of the members. These groups meet together once a 
month in the parish hall to report work that has been done 
and to plan work for the coming month. On the fourth Sun- 
day evening of every month they have a special public service in 
the Church. A program is rendered at this service with an 
address on missions. Of the ten meetings held in 1926, three 
were inter-racial. The Spirit of Missions is gleaned at these 
meetings, and Miss Matthew's "Four Meditations" has been 
studied during the past year. 

Group No. 1 has prepared a box of clothing valued at $25 
and sent it to Holy Trinity Mission, Monroe. Group ISTos. 2 
and 3 have made six visits to the County Home, at which times 
they held prayer services and served refreshments to the in- 
mates. Preceding the week of the Bishops' Crusade, the women 
of this branch got together and formed prayer groups which 
continue to meet regularly for Bible study and prayer. 

The Bishop Tuttle School has made an encouraging beginning 
in its work, with a group of four earnest, intelligent women, 
representing the best type of young Negro womanhood. The 
senior is already in a position as Traveler's Aid in the Raleigh 
station, where she is doing part time until she finishes her 
course in May. The school is making the effort to fit the stu- 
dents for the type of work they can do best among the many 
openings in Public Welfare as well as in the Church. 

Mrs. Jessie Moss, the chairman of one of these groups, has 
organized the boys and girls of the Sunday School into the 
Young People's Service League. The girls are making clothes 
for the Baby's Ward in the Good Samaritan Hospital, and the 
boys are making themselves useful in various ways. This 
Auxiliary has sent in $50 in money during the year, 1926, which 
has been sent to Mr. Wilkes, the diocesan treasurer, for distribu- 
tion. They close their report by saying they will endeavor to 
do more and better work during the coming year. A new rectory 
has been built in this parish the past year which has made 
additional responsibility for the women as well as for the 
men. 

Durham 

St. Titus' Branch at Durham has not sent in a report, but 
we have recently visited them and find that the minister in 



46 Eighth Annual Report 

charge, the Rev. Mr. Henderson, is trying to huild a church. 
The women are contributing to this. They have sent $4.50 from 
this branch for Auxiliary work. 

Henderson 

The women of the Mission of the Resurrection at Henderson 
report that they have organized the young people into working 
groups. The girls meet for sewing and the study of missions. 
This branch has sent $7 for the Corporate Gift and $2 for 
other Auxiliary work. 

Littleton 

St. Anna's Branch at Littleton has contributed $2 in money 
for the Auxiliary work during the past year. This branch 
needs leadership and information about the work of the Auxil- 
iary. The Inter-racial Committee could help these women to 
reorganize their work. A few years ago we had a strong branch 
of workers at this mission. 

Raleigh 

I am sorry not to be able to report work done by St. Ambrose 
Branch at Raleigh. For some reason their report did not reach 
me. I am sure they have done a great deal during the past 
year. The treasurer reports that they sent $5 for the United 
Thank Offering; $10 for the Bishop Tuttle Training School; 
$12 for the William Hoke Ramsaur Memorial School in Liberia, 
and $4 for other pledges. 

At St. Augustine's the enrollment for the year, 1926, was 
twenty-one, consisting of teachers and other women workers of 
the school. We consider Mrs. A. B. Hunter our honorary Presi- 
dent. We have had the great pleasure of having with us this 
year Miss Emily C. Tillotson, as a member and a leader of our 
class. The senior girls have visited our meetings also during 
the year. Our meetings have been held in the Bishop Tuttle 
School, the Woman's Auxiliary own building. Our program 
was varied this year. During Lent a pamphlet called "The 
Search for Peace" was studied under the leadership of Miss 
Tillotson. As Christians, we found out our duty toward the 
cessation of wars. In March, Mrs. Allison, sister of Miss Tillot- 



The Woman's Auxiliaey 47 

son, and head of the field work in the New York School of 
Social Work, spoke to us on "What is Social Case Work?" 
Miss Richards gave an interesting report of the Fourteenth An- 
nual Conference for Social Service held in Greensboro. 

The Annual Diocesan meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary 
was held in Durham in the week of April 18th. Mrs. Delany, 
Miss Gates, Miss Tillotson, Miss Snodgrass and Miss Richards 
from our branch attended some of the meetings and spoke 
briefly to us. The "Corporate Gift" and "The Message" were 
very carefully explained to us by Miss Tillotson at one of our 
meetings. On the evening of the Annunciation the Daughters 
of St. Mary joined the Woman's Auxiliary in an Intercessory 
service. During our meetings we have sewed on curtains for 
the Tuttle School, and made towels, rubber aprons, napkins and 
other hospital supplies for St. Agnes Hospital. 

A "Big Sister" group of the girls of St. Augustine's School 
raised $11.25 and presented it to the United Thank Offering 
of the Woman's Auxiliary as a thank offering for the Bishop 
Tuttle School. Members of the Auxiliary have helped the differ- 
ent Big Sister groups with their Little Sisters during Lent in 
whatever way they could. 

Every year, soon after St. Augustine's opens, on a Sunday 
morning at breakfast time, a United Thank Offering Box is 
shown to the students. The meaning of the offering is ex- 
plained to them, and they are reminded that some of our 
teachers are paid from this fund, and that a large sum was 
given toward building a dormitory for the girls in 1913. Many 
of the boys and girls are glad to have the privilege of sharing 
in this offering. On Friday afternoons when we have our 
Mothers' Meetings at St. Augustine's we always pass around 
a United Thank Offering box, thus giving the Mothers a chance 
to make a thank offering. Of course the Auxiliary women have 
their individual boxes, which are opened at stated times, and 
the money put in the bank to draw interest. 

Rocky Mount 

Mrs. F. S. Spruill, a member of the Inter-racial Committee, 
has greatly encouraged the women of Holy Cross Mission at 



Eighth Annual Report 



Rocky Mount. The work at Rocky Mount has taken on new life 
and courage and the women are taking an active part in the 
work of the Bishops' Crusade. They have given U. T. O. boxes 
to the women and are working up a strong organization among 
their young people. This Mission is without a church building 
and the women are trying to share in the responsibility of 
building a church. 

Tarboro 

St. Luke's Branch at Tarboro has made no report of work 
this year but the women have sent $1.83 for the U. T. O. and 
$3.00 for the Bishop Tuttle School. 

Warren County 

St. Luke's Mission, Warren County, has a small membership 
and the people live far apart, but they always send a representa- 
tive to the Annual Meeting and it is commendable that they 
have kept up with certain lines of the Auxiliary work. They 
have sent $1.25 for the U. T. O. and $2.00 for Bishop Delany's 
disposal. 

Warrenton 

The women of All Saints' Mission at Warrenton have kept 
together well the past year, and have done some sewing and 
have on hand some ten or fifteen well made garments. There 
are some very pretty gingham dresses among these garments, 
for girls between ten and fourteen. If any one knows where 
these garments are needed, we shall be glad to send them. These 
women have sent $5.00 for the Corporate Gift, and $1.75 for 
other pledges. 

Our women pledged for the Corporate Gift $150.00, and all 
of this amount except about $5.00 has been sent to Miss 
Winston. We are still hoping to complete our pledges for the 
Bishop Tuttle School, and the William Hoke Ramsaur Memo- 
rial School. We have paid $198.30 on these two specials since 
the last General Convention. 

You will see that no report is made for Auxiliary work in 
Greensboro, Monroe, Oxford, Salisbury, Satterwhite, Statesville, 
Wilson and Winston-Salem. For various reasons the Auxiliary 
work in these places has been discontinued. I have visited some 



The Woman's Auxiliary 49 

of the places and tried to revive the work, but it takes more 
than one or two visits to put this sort of thing on a sure founda- 
tion. Here is a splendid opportunity for the Inter-racial Com- 
mittee, to help us out. We have had Auxiliary work at nearly 
all of these stations, and I am certain it could be nursed into 
life again with proper supervision. 

I have to confess that the Auxiliary work in the Colored Con- 
vocation has had very little help from me because my duties 
at St. Augustine's School that require every minute of my time. 
However, this makes me know what splendid work our women 
would do if they had the proper leadership and encouragement. 

I must not close this report without expressing thanks and 
sincere appreciation to the Inter-racial Committee and Mrs. 
Way for the help, encouragement and personal interest they 
have shown in the work of the Colored Convocation. 

Mrs. Henry B. Delany, 
President of the Woman's Auxiliary 
of the Colored Convocation.

REPORTS OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The District of Edgecombe comprising the counties of Wil- 
son, JSTash, Edgecombe, Halifax and Northampton, has sixteen 
branches of the Woman's Auxiliary with an enrollment of 596. 

Two district meetings were held, the first in May at Scotland 
]STeck with an attendance of 170, the Chairman being Mrs. W. L. 
Long. The keynote of the meeting was, "Our Young People." 
The second was at Tarboro with the present Chairman presid- 
ing. About 200 were present, the keynote at this time, "The 
Deepening of the Spiritual Life." 

Six thousand seven hundred four dollars and sixty-nine 
cents has been contributed through the Auxiliary for work at 
home and abroad. This includes pledges to the Diocesan Treas- 
urer, pledges to the Supply Department, Boxes, the United 
Thank Offering and pledges to home Parishes. Innumerable 
gifts of second-hand clothing and food are omitted. 

Twelve branches observed the "Intercessory Days" and offer- 
ings taken. Eight branches report "Corporate Communions." 

The Supply Department reports — cash $152.00, boxes to 
Thompson Orphanage and elsewhere $481.00, garments made 
for Supply Room 151. 

The amount received from the U. T. O. was $1,309.09. 

The Christian Social Service Secretary reports a decided 
awakening to our obligations in this respect. In every branch 
there is an active committee doing splendid work. 

Along educational lines, the District, from the smallest branch 
to the largest, has made diligent effort to be enlightened. The 



The Woman's Auxiliary 51 

result of this is clearly shown in the broadening of the scope 
of its activities and the intelligent manner it is carried on. 

Little, so far, has been done in the Recruiting Field, but care- 
ful plans are made for the development of this part of the 
work. 

It is difficult to report Prayer Partnership. Things of this 
nature cannot be measured in formal figures, but I do not 
hesitate to state that many are availing themselves of this 
blessed privilege. 

And now may I conclude with what, under my observation, 
I consider the outstanding feature of the District — it is its 
"aliveness." Every branch, with one exception, meets regularly, 
has excellent leadership in all departments. In so far as each 
is able all phases of the Auxiliary are faithfully carried out. 
When we pause to consider that nine branches have been with- 
out resident priests, their achievements are all the more wonder- 
ful. Their responsiveness to all appeals, the personal service 
rendered in the Rural Mission, the universal interest and activ- 
ity in social work, the desire to learn, and the keeping of the 
Day of Intercession, October 15th, makes one truly think that 
the Woman's Auxiliary in the District of Edgecombe has a broad 
and just conception of what the Church stands for in the world 
and a full realization of its obligations and responsibilities. 

Rena H. Clark, Chairman. 



REPORT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN DISTRICT 

In May, 1926, at the Spring Meeting of the District of 
Rowan held at St. Peter's Church, Salisbury, Mrs. E. F. Guil- 
ford, Statesville, was elected Chairman of this District, suc- 
ceeding Mrs. C. F. Massey, Salisbury, whose term of office 
expired at this meeting. 

In August and September the Pilgrimage of Prayer, in prep- 
aration for the approaching Crusade, was observed by a number 
of branches of the District with an encouraging degree of suc- 
cess, an effort having been made to have simultaneous services 
at every church. 

By action of the Executive Committee of W. A., in session 
with the President, Mrs. Way, at St. Mary's Rectory on Sep- 



Eighth Annual Report 



tember 8, 1926, tbe districts of Rowan and Forsyth were com- 
bined under the name of Forsyth-Rowan, which happy combi- 
nation should prove a power for much good in the Church. 

On October 12, 1926, the first meeting of the new Forsyth- 
Rowan District took place at Trinity Church, Statesville. The 
attendance was over one hundred and the meeting was most 
successful from every standpoint, especially in point of inspira- 
tion, enthusiasm and interest. Much business was transacted. 
Bishop Penick addressed the body on the approaching Crusade 
and through his earnest, illuminating talk, the women were 
brought to realize their responsibility in this great movement. 

The District of Forsyth-Rowan now consists of 14 branches, 
a new branch having been organized at St. George's, Woodleaf, 
in October and was functioning by the end of 1926. The possi- 
bility of two other branches being organized was suggested and 
it is hoped they will materialize. I have had reported to me 
a membership of 197, one branch failing to report its number, 
but I believe we have more than 200 women affiliated with 
W. A. in this district. With that number we are doing excellent 
work, but still more and better work easily can be accomplished. 

The scholarship maintained at Valle Crucis School for some 
worthy girl is still the outstanding social service work of the 
District and of which we are justly proud. 

Social Service work has assumed numerous phases in the 
various branches — such as contributing to support of an in- 
digent patient at Sanatorium by Lexington branch, which 
branch is also working for a much needed Parish House; serv- 
ices held at jails are reported by several branches; sewing done 
for Thompson Orphanage. St. Paul's Branch, Salisbury, sent 
three delegates to Valle Crucis; St. Luke's, Salisbury, assisted 
in Baby Clinic, sent a year's magazine subscription to Miss 
Groff, our Prayer Partner in China, magazines to Patterson 
School, pictures and song books to three rural schools, con- 
tributed generously to Albemarle Mission; St. Paul's, "Winston- 
Salem, sent Christmas gifts to Miss Bessie Blacknall, and cards 
to all the missionaries from North Carolina, each circle at St. 
Paul's also taking a family to care for at Christmas; Cooleemee 
contributed to Albemarle Mission as did Statesville branch. In 



The Woman's Auxiliary 53 

fact, reports from the District in general show these consecrated 
women doing the work among the poor, sick and suffering as 
commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ gladly, fully and I believe 
prayerfully. 

Eight Intercessory days have been reported and nine Cor- 
porate Communions. 

Our Box Work Secretary, Mrs. Mountcastle, writes as fol- 
lows: "Our work shows a remarkable improvement and decided 
stride forward ; nearly all branches have sent in pledge cards ; 
a great increase in boxes to Supply Room; also to Thompson 
Orphanage and more sewing done this year than ever before." 

Our earnest, enthusiastic Recruiting Secretary, Mrs. Hardin, 
says that five reported having the prayer for volunteers at each 
meeting; three reported having young people attend a summer 
conference; two reported contributions to the Conference fund 
for Diocesan delegates; four reported putting on pageants or 
missionary programs by the young people; St. Paul's Branch, 
Winston-Salem, reported having a member of the parish who 
manifests a desire to become a missionary, Miss Mary Roberts 
Russell; this branch has assumed the support of the family of 
Mr. Parker Moore, who is now preparing for the sacred min- 
istry. Let me say just here that St. Paul's, (Winston-Salem), re- 
port on Recruiting work was most splendid and should be an in- 
centive to the other branches for more and better work. 

Our Educational Secretary, Mrs. McArthur, says that this 
work, after the consolidation of the two districts, opened up 
with the Educational Institute in the fall which the St. Paul's, 
Winston-Salem, branch entertained. Miss Laura Boyer, the 
principal speaker, conveyed an entirely new conception of this 
branch of the work, gave inspiration and practical advice as to 
conduct of educational classes and what to present. She reports 
that in December, the yearly reports were sent in to Mrs. Mazyck 
and says the majority of the parishes in this district responded 
well but there is always room for improvement in the prompt- 
ness with which matters of this kind are taken up. Several 
branches report study classes and educational work in the 
circles. 

Our Social Service Secretary, Mrs. Heathman, reports the 
$200 for 1926 Valle Crucis Scholarship had been collected and 



54 Eighth Annual Report 

handed to the Diocesan Treasurer. The latter part of the year 
Forsyth assisted in this work. 

Our U. T. Offering for 1926, from figures given the Diocesan 
Custodian for the two districts totals $1,357.99. St. Paul's, 
Winston-Salem, gave in 1921 $25 as U. T. Offering and in 1926 
$1,013. Not only is the amount larger than ever before but 
more members have contributed to this offering. 

I have not the exact total amount given by the district in 
1926, but, exclusive of the U. T. Offering, I have a rough total, 
estimated from the branch reports, of $5,550.49 ; and including 
the LT. T. Offering of this district, a safe estimate would be 
nearing $6,908.48, the total amount raised by this District for 
tbe various calls of our Church — $700 of this, having been lost 
by failure of a bank in Winston-Salem. 

Mrs. E. F. Guilford, Chairman. 

REPORT OF GRANVILLE DISTRICT 

The District of Granville is comprised of the counties of 
Granville, Warren, Franklin and Vance, and one town in Hali- 
fax, and contains the following towns : Oxford, Franklinton, 
Louisburg, Warrenton, Ridgeway, Townsville, Kittrell, Middle- 
burg, Stovall and Henderson. Neither Middleburg, Kittrell 
nor Stovall has an active branch of the Auxiliary, though steps 
are being taken to arouse interest sufficient to renew activities, 
and also an effort has been made to organize a branch at Berea 
— with a hopeful chance of success. There are nine well organ- 
ized branches of the Auxiliary with a full staff of officers, and 
work is being done systematically in all departments. 

There is a membership of 226. 

Total sum of money contributed during 1926 has been $1,880.18 

The number of regular stated Intercessory Days observed 

has been 6 

The offering for designated purposes (33.40) 

Number of Corporate Communions reported 27 

United Thank Offering 628.18 

$2,508.36 



The Woman's Auxiliary 55 

The branch at Littleton has lost two members by death in the 
past year : Mrs. Francis Joyner and Mrs. P. A. Spruill. 

There have been two district meetings, one held May 14th, 
in Henderson, and one in Kidgeway, October 19th. Mrs. Walter 
Burwell was Chairman of the District at the time of May 
meeting. 

Educational work was stressed at this meeting and we were 
fortunate in having Miss Emily Tillotson from the Church 
Mission House, who outlined plans and methods for instruction 
and information, and told of the necessity of knowing facts 
about the Church's work at home and in the field. She urged 
every one to obey the injunction "Love the Lord with all Thy 
Mind." Miss Richards from St. Augustine's School, Raleigh, 
was also present and gave a little talk on the work among the 
colored people there. 

There was present all day at this meeting the colored woman 
worker from the Church of the Resurrection, an earnest, ener- 
getic woman who thoroughly enjoyed the privilege of hearing 
about the work of the Auxiliary. 

At the May district meeting the question of a scholarship 
for some young colored woman at the Bishop Tuttle Memorial 
in Raleigh was brought up, and the decision as to the right girl 
to send was to be left to Mr. Pollard, colored Lay Reader, school 
teacher in Louisburg and Henderson. Later on, when the time 
came for the girl to be sent to school, it seemed she was not 
quite prepared but was teaching to increase her funds and 
would be ready to go next year. The fund on hand is only 
$35.00, and this was to be reserved until the girl was ready. 

Throughout the district a great deal of interest is shown in 
the work among the colored people ; in almost every report there 
is recorded something done to promote good feeling, and a help- 
ful cooperation with the workers has been manifested. 

Magazines, church papers, subscriptions to the Spirit of Mis- 
sions, clothes given to enable children to go to school and the 
older people to- go to Church, attendance at their entertainments 
when they put on programs, interest in their problems, all 
are means used by the different branches to encourage the work 
in this field. 



56 Eighth Annual Report 

The Box Work of the District has been carried on as planned 
by our Box Chairman. Every branch reported Box Work done, 
and money sent and valuation of boxes amounted to a total of 
$640.75. This field of service is much enjoyed by everybody, 
and particularly so by the Bessie Blacknall Branch in Hender- 
son, when they make an outfit for Delia, the little girl at 
J^enana, Alaska, the pet and ward of the Mission. 

Study classes have been held and the following books reviewed : 
"That Freedom," "The Church's Program," and "Beyond City 
Limits." Regular printed programs have been used by one 
active branch ; others used programs as suggested in Year Book. 
One branch devoted some time at every meeting to study of 
items on pledge list until every member was informed as to the 
disposition of their money. 

The spiritual side of the Auxiliary has not been neglected, in 
fact, there are evidences of deeper consecration and a renewed 
interest in things spiritual. The "Message" was carried from 
l^arish to parish during the week of September 6 to 11. The 
influence of this period of prayer and intercession has been 
lasting and made a deep impression. Women who never before 
had read a prayer in public were given strength to take their 
part in this great spiritual rededication. The most wonderful 
spirit of reverence, humility and faith was shown. This Pil- 
grimage was a wonderful forerunner of the Bishops' Crusade, 
and left every one connected with it ready to join in with the 
Church at large in this greater movement that has meant so 
much to all. 

The fall meeting of the district was held* in the little church 
in Ridgeway. It is always an inspiration to meet with this 
consecrated band of women workers in this mission. Though 
few in number, they are faithful in every obligation. 

There were some wonderful talks made at this meeting. We 
had with us four Diocesan officers: Mrs. Way, Mrs. R. H. 
Lewis, Mrs. W. D. Burwell, and Mrs. Bulluck. Mrs. Spruill, 
member of the Diocesan Executive Council, was also present 
and spoke on Social Service. The outstanding feature of this 
meeting was the conference on Christian Social Service. The 
conference was led by Mrs. L. H. Justice of Littleton, who intro- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 57 

duced Mrs. Bulluck, Diocesan Chairman Social Service, as chief 
speaker. Mrs. Bulluck impressed every one with her knowledge 
of her subject, her interest in it, and her ability to speak. Rural 
Work was her topic — she convinced those present that it is time 
for us to begin to do the work that is right around us; that we 
are neglecting our own people; that the Church is not reaching 
the rural communities. 

The study of the text-book "Beyond the City Limits" has 
been a splendid "follow-up" of this talk, and efforts are being 
made in the parish to establish other missions as a result of this 
study. Cottage meetings have been planned, also, to be held 
with those beyond the reach of church services. 

The offering at the Communion Service at this district meet- 
ing was used as follows : $10 each was sent to our Prayer Part- 
ner, Miss Maud Whitley, and to Miss Bessie Blacknall, as a 
Christmas gift; $2.58 to Mrs. Davis for Summer Conference 
Fund. 

It would give me great pleasure to tell in detail of some of 
the excellent work done by the different parishes, of the Social 
Service work done by Louisburg, the splendid reports in all 
fields of service from Oxford, and of the faithful work of the 
one member in Franklinton, and I could go on and enumerate 
some special excellence in each parish, but I would exceed my 
time limit, and also the limit of your patience. I should say, 
however, that the outstanding characteristic of this district is 
loyalty to church and loyalty to obligations, and outstanding 
work is Social Service. 

Mrs. I. W. Hughes, Chairman: 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GUELFORD 

As the mantle of District Chairman has very recently fallen 
on my shoulders, and as circumstances prevented my sharing 
very personally in the Auxiliary work in the district last year, 
this report of the work of others has been gleaned from many 
sources, and is, necessarily, of a very general nature. 

"I have gathered a posy of other men's flowers (or women's), 
And only the cords which bind them are my own."' 



58 Eighth Annual Report 

The District of Guilford is composed of twelve branches, with 
an Auxiliary membership of 215. I believe this district can 
boast of the smallest organized branch in the Diocese, numeri- 
cally — Emmanuel, Stoneville — which has only two members. 
The whole branch is eligible for attendance at Conventions in 
the role of President and one Delegate! 

Eight branches report a total of 28 Intercessory Days observed 
and of 17 Corporate Communions. These are among the "Out- 
ward and visible signs" of the spiritual life of the Auxiliary, 
which phase was deepened and emphasized last year, of course, 
by the preparations for the Crusade. The study of the Mes- 
sage, together with its illuminating interpretations and the 
meditations based upon it, could not fail to leave an impress of 
personal responsibility and opportunity, through the life of The 
Spirit. May I speak, in passing, of a very helpful meditation 
written by Mrs. J. S. Holmes as a part of the preparation for 
the Crusade, but searching and inspiring for use at any time? 

From the district the financial gifts have amounted approxi- 
mately to $1,758.62, or about $8.18 per member, and are divided 
under the following three heads: IT. T. O., $695.06; Supply 
Department, $258; and to other objects, $805.58. 

The reports of the departments show life and progress. Many 
of the branches shared in carrying on the supply work, both 
by sewing for the Supply Room and by furnishing boxes out- 
right. The Study Classes, which have been, for the most part, 
the regular programs for the meetings, have centered somewhat 
around the subject for the year — Latin America — with material 
from various sources. Other subjects studied have been "Be- 
yond City Limits," "Peace," Church History, The Bible, and 
so forth, with regular readings from "The Spirit of Missions," 
"The Church at Work," and other Church papers. The activi- 
ties of the Department of Christian Social Service have been 
numerous, varied, and very interesting. Dr. Goodwin, in his 
"Beyond City Limits," stresses this part of the Church's work 
as a great opportunity, and certainly it carries with it a very 
personal joy in ministering. The Prayer-Partnership Corre- 
spondent has given generously of her time in encouraging the 
branches to keep in touch with the Prayer-Partner of the dis- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 59 

trict, Miss Mildred Hayes, at Porto Rico, and there has been a 
growth of interest in this phase of the work. 

The district meeting in the spring was held with the branch 
of St. Andrew's Mission, Rockingham County, at the school- 
house on the Galloway farm. The beautiful views of the sur- 
rounding country, and the uniqueness of the situation, made it 
a day of special interest, and an opportunity was given for the 
study of Rural Missions at first hand. A souvenir of the day 
was the gift of a piano by the district, for use at the services 
at the school building. 

The fall meeting was held at St. Andrew's Church, Greens- 
boro, in an atmosphere of warm and gracious hospitality. 
Routine business was transacted and the theme for forward 
activity centered about the coming Crusade. 

Any report of the work for the extension of the Kingdom 
should be a call to greater things, so, as we review our work of 
the past year, "we thank God and take courage," eagerly, joy- 
fully, for the opportunities which lie before us. 

Mrs. William J. Gordon, Chairman. 



REPORT OF DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

Two meetings a year are held by the Mecklenburg District, 
one in the fall and another meeting in the spring, the average 
attendance at these meetings being sixty. We find that much 
interest is manifested in such meetings, and we hope the branches 
are helped and inspired by the contact with one another. 

It is the policy of the district to have one outstanding speaker 
at each meeting, who will talk on some phase of the work of the 
Auxiliary in which we are particularly interested or the study 
of which we will take up in Lent. At our fall meeting in 1926, 
Archdeacon Hardin spoke on the Rural Work, and several of 
the branches reported studying "Beyond City Limits" in the 
study classes during Lent or Advent. At the spring meeting in 
1926 we were fortunate in having Rev. Francis A. Cox, mission- 
ary to China, who gave a most interesting and comprehensive 
talk on his work in that far country. Bishop Penick always 
has a message for us of spiritual inspiration, and altogether our 
district meetings are of benefit. 



60 Eighth Antstual Report 

During or just before the Crusade was held in Charlotte, 
letters were sent to all the branches passing on the suggestions 
of Bishop Penick of the woman's part in the work of the 
Crusade, and the branches were urged to send representatives 
to the mass meeting in Charlotte, February 16. We have no 
registration of these out-of-town guests, but practically every 
branch in the district had representatives, and we also had 
guests from Greensboro, Spray, Hamlet, and other places. 

Intercessory Days and Corporate Communions are not ob- 
served as often as we would like. Our members are evidently 
more Marthas than Marys, but the branches all report from two 
to five Intercessory Days observed and two or three Corporate 
Communions held. 

St. Mark's, Mecklenburg, reports their outstanding work the 
care of one of the boys at the Thompson Orphanage, and the 
amount of money given last year, $39.25, all of which was 
designated for certain objects, and $10 for United Offering; 
24 members. 

All Saints', Concord, reports visits among the sick, in their 
homes and hospitals, with gifts of flowers, nourishment, books 
and magazines, and magazines taken to the shut-in and unfor- 
tunates on the chain-gang. The amount of money sent through 
Diocesan Treasurer, $209.71, and $200 spent on the rectory. 
United Offering, $56.67; 11 members. 

St. Martin's Woman's Auxiliary reports social service work 
as that on which more stress is placed. This branch, I know, 
makes an effort to have an outside speaker at least once a month, 
and their interest in Auxiliary work is always keen. Their 
gifts in money this year have amounted to $152.13, $50, or a 
little more, of which was designated for certain objects, and a 
box of clothing amounting to $28 was sent out; 48 members. 

Mary and Martha, St. Martin's, support a Bible woman as 
their main work, and the amount of money this year is $179.18, 
$97.50 designated for certain purposes, 22 members. 

The Bishop Atkinson Branch, Church of the Holy Comforter, 
reports its outstanding work the care of an unfortunate family 
in Charlotte. Gifts amounted to $189.82, $72 of which was 
sent to the Diocesan Treasurer. 



The Yeoman's Auxiliary 61 

St. Peter's, Charlotte, has a membership of 150, and the 
amount sent this year to the Diocesan Treasurer was $1,141.39, 
$700 of which was designated for special objects. Five thou- 
sand dollars has been expended by this branch in parochial and 
local work. 

Monroe is a mission branch that has been handicapped this 
year by the removal of the minister, but they report twenty 
members and a United Thank Offering of $30. 

Albemarle, another mission branch, reports that all the mem- 
bers of the Auxiliary except one have moved to other places, 
and at present there is no branch, but clothing and money were 
given to unfortunates at Christmas, tuberculosis seals sold, and 
$100 made for the church by the sale of candy, Christmas cards, 
etc., and a United Thank Offering of $10 was made. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Joseph Garibaldi, Chairman. 

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The District of Orange comprises 10 branches, with a mem- 
bership of approximately 220 women ; all are active and doing 
splendid work. The fall meeting was held in Hillsboro in 
St. Matthew's Church, with a splendid attendance. Our offer- 
ing was given to the church of Sanford, $45. There was no 
spring meeting, as the annual meeting of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary of the Diocese was held in St. Philip's Church, Durham. 
This was a great honor and pleasure to our district, and a great 
inspiration, also. All quotas and pledges have been met, Inter- 
cessory Days have been generally kept, and well attended. The 
educational work and study classes have been along the lines 
designated by our Educational Chairman. Social Service has 
been varied and active. The Chapel Hill Branch, particularly, 
reports much work, having a member on the investigating 
board of the King's Daughters and one leading the Young 
People's Service League; also, visiting the poor farm and hold- 
ing services and carrying gifts at Christmas. Several Auxilia- 
ries have had social and welfare workers on their programs, 
thus creating an intelligent interest in this work. 



62 Eighth Annual Report 

The total money for the district is about $2,779.42 

Box work 1,310.46 

U. T. 621.41 

Through the Pilgrimage of Prayer "The Message" was car- 
ried to every branch in the district, and we trust and believe 
meant a blessing to us. 

Mrs. J. M. M. Gregory, Chairman. 



REPORT OF DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

The District of Richmond is composed of three small parishes, 
Wadesboro, Rockingham, and Hamlet, and two missions, Anson- 
ville and Laurinburg, with four branches of the Auxiliary, and 
a total enrollment of sixty-three members. There being no 
organized branch at Laurinburg, and only four members at 
Ansonville. 

Two district meetings were held during the year 1926. One 
at Rockingham, last June, and the other at Hamlet, in Novem- 
ber. Both were fine meetings and well attended. 

In the three larger branches there are six departments, each 
with its secretary, and all rendering service, though some are 
more active and enthusiastic than others. It is not difficult to 
arouse interest and enlist sympathy in almost any form of 
social service, for all are ready to help their fellowmen. The 
same applies to the Supply (Box) Work, which, after all, is 
only social service, and it may be said of the United Thank 
Offering that we are not unmindful of the mercies of God and 
His loving care, and give gladly wmat we can, but our educa- 
tional work is by no means the best of which we are capable, 
though we have done something. Rockingham took, with the 
aid of their rector, during Lent, "The World Call to the 
Church." Wadesboro bought books during the Crusade and 
read them in Lent. Hamlet alone stands out as having done 
really fine educational work, under the leadership of their 
Educational Secretary, Mrs. Hudnell, and their young rector, 
Rev. W. A. Lilycrop. They chose as their subject Porto Rico, 
having first obtained mimeographed copies of a program from 
the Church Missions House, which they found most helpful, 



The Woman's Auxiliary 63 

and commend for use to other branches. At the same time, they 
sewed and made garments for the little Porto Ricons, thereby 
giving substantial evidence of their interest. 

It is hoped that our women will soon come to realize that an 
Auxiliary advances only as it is informed, and will take advan- 
tage of the means and the literature the Church has provided 
for extending their information.

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF WAKE 

Number of branches, 9 ; number of members, 378 ; total sum 
realized, $5,700. 

The Christ Church Branch, while fully measuring up to her 
pledges, as shown in our Diocesan Treasurer's report, has done 
notable work in contributing $600 for social service in St. 
Savior's Mission, has continued her generous support of the 
Thompson Orphanage, and is very much alive in many other 
directions. Her membership is 200, and contributions for all 
purposes, $3,000. 

The membership of the Good Shepherd (two branches) is 
100, with a total contribution of $2,320. Both the Lucy Pit- 
tenger and the St. Anne's branches are doing outstanding work 
in social service. 

St. Savior's report shows active work and well attended meet- 
ings and study classes. They had pleasure, also, in sending a 
contribution to the church at Spray. 



Eighth Annual Report 



All the smaller branches are working towards our special 
aims, which are (1) representation in the Sliding Scale, (2) 
contribution to the six objects enumerated in the Diocesan 
Treasurer's report, and (3) work for the "parish and the com- 
munity" as well as for the "Diocese, the Nation, and the world." 
The city branches show an increasing sense of responsibility 
towards the small-town groups, and the latter are holding up 
their end of the line with constantly increasing interest. 
Erwin is standing staunchly back of the church's work in 
that growing mill town. Smithfleld takes special pleasure in 
her social service work of cooperation with the county welfare 
officer, etc. St. John's (Wake Forest), our newest branch, is 
gaining in interest and work, while Selma, our smallest 
branch (only five members), entertained a large delegation of 
us most delightfully at the fall district meeting. We are glad 
to note that "St. Mary's" is among the branches running "on 
six cylinders." 

Careful and prayerful preparation was made throughout the 
district for the Bishops' Crusade, and there is a gradually in- 
creasing recognition of the Intercessory Days. 

Mrs. J. S. Holmes, Chairman.

RESOLUTIONS 



The following resolutions were adopted at the Annual Meet- 
ing, 1927: 



Resolved, That we accept the report of our beloved President, and 
adopt the suggestions contained therein. 



Whereas the Bishop Tuttle Memorial School for the training of 
colored women workers was established by the Woman's Auxiliary 
to the General Council, and 

Whereas North Carolina was chosen by the National Committee as 
the place for this school : 

Resolved, That we members of the Woman's Auxiliary of the 
Diocese of North Carolina, in recognition of these facts, do establish 
a scholarship in The Bishop Tuttle Memorial School. 



Be it Resolved, That hereafter, in the Commemoration of the 
Departed, names read out shall be the names of those who have 
passed away from Convention to Convention, and not from year to 
year. 



Resolved, That it is the sense of this Convention that a Social 
Service field worker for the Diocese be employed as soon as practi- 
cable, and that a special committee be appointed by the President to 
study the whole matter, in conference with the Executive Council of 
the Diocese, and report their findings to the next Convention of the 
Woman's Auxiliary. 



Resolved, That the offering taken at the evening service Wednes- 
day be divided between the two speakers as an appreciation of their 
work and the inspiration received. 



Resolved, That it is the sense of this Convention that changes could 
be made to advantage in the Sliding Scale. We therefore ask the 
Executive Committee to consider this matter, and take the necessary 
steps to amend the Constitution so that changes can be made at the 
next Annual Meeting.

66 Eighth Annual Report 

Whereas Saint Mary's School has been for many years a source of 
inspiration to the Church women of North Carolina : 

Resolved, That we, as members of the Woman's Auxiliary of the 
Diocese of North Carolina, establish an annual scholarship of $600 
at Saint Mary's School, the beneficiary to be designated by the 
Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

This resolution was amended as follows : 

That we accept this resolution, if the Executive Committee or a 
committee appointed by the President can find a way to finance the 
scholarship. 

Carried with this amendment.

man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with

parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all things which 
are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen.

God, world without end. Amen.

everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Sustain her in all her labor of love. May she speak peace to troubled 
hearts and bring many souls into the joy and liberty of the Gospel. 
Be Thou, O Lord, her guide in doubt, her strength in weariness, and 
her comfort in sorrow. Inspire her with Thy gracious promise that 
though the sower may go forth weeping, bearing precious seed, he 
will come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him. Grant this 
for the sake of Him Who went about doing good, Thy Son, Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen.

We give Thee humble thanks, O Heavenly Father, that Thou hast 
vouchsafed to call us to the knowledge of Thy grace and faith in 
Thee ; increase this knowledge and confirm this faith in us evermore. 
Grant that we may daily be renewed by Thy Holy Spirit, so that all 
sinful affections may die in us, and that all things belonging to the 
Spirit may live and grow in us ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving kind- 
ness reacheth unto the world's end : We give Thee humble thanks 
for all the great things Thou hast done and art doing for the children 
of men ; for the opening of heathen lands to the light of Thy truth ; 
for making paths in the deep waters and highways in the desert; 
for knitting nation to nation in the bond of fellowship, and for the 
planting of Thy Church in all the earth. O merciful Father, in whom 
the whole family is named, fill full our hearts with grateful love for 
this Thy goodness, granting grace henceforth to serve Thee better 
and more perfectly to know Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

FOREWORD 



IN ANTICIPATION OF THE TRIENNIAL CONVENTION, TO 
BE HELD IN WASHINGTON, OCTOBER, 1928 

To the Woman's Auxiliary: 

I am anxious that all the members of the Woman's Auxiliary 
should be advised of the great importance of preparing for the 
General Convention which is to meet in Washington in October, 
1928. If we are to make it an occasion of great spiritual power, 
we cannot begin too soon to prepare for it. I feel very strongly 
that the officers and members of the Auxiliary will contribute a 
large part towards making this Convention all that it should be. 

The Woman's Auxiliary is one of the most vital and important 
elements in a great General Convention, and I am hoping and 
praying that in the approaching Convention we may register a 
higher mark of spiritual attainment, and thereby give a fresh- 
ened impulse to the great work which the Auxiliary is doing. 

It is anticipated that this Convention will bring together up- 
wards of about twenty thousand people. One feature that will 
prove most interesting and practical in entertaining the hosts 
of people who will be with us is the rapid development and com- 
pletion of the extensive Bishop's Garden. The All Hallow's 
Guild supported by the Bishop's Guild and interested indi- 
viduals, are carrying to consummation plans that will make this 
garden the most perfect place that could be desired for great 
outdoor social gatherings. Two objectives that are worthy of our 
most serious consideration have to do with the spiritual and 
fraternal aspects of the Convention and its allied bodies. 

I am asking every officer and member of the Auxiliary, in- 
deed, every interested member of our Church to pray and work, 
to the end that the Convention of 1928 may prove to be the 
greatest in the history of the Church. 

James E. Freeman, Bishop of Washington. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 11 



RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1928 

Resolved, That the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of 
North Carolina hereby record its sense of loss in the death of 
the Et. Rev. Henry Beard Delany, D.D., Suffragan Bishop of 
the Diocese. In his life, work, and character Bishop Delany 
has left to his own race and to all Christian people, a noble 
example of devotion to his Master, fidelity to his Church, use- 
fulness to society, integrity in service, and the memory of a 
name of singular spiritual beauty. 

Resolved, That the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of 
North Carolina, realizing the importance of completing the 
Bishop Rowe Foundation, requests each Parish to send before 
July 1st, 1928, contributions of $2.00 or more to this fund. 

Resolved, That a minimum of $200.00 be sent during the 
year 1928, to Miss Mary Wood McKenzie, N. C. Missionary 
to Liberia, to be used at her discretion, as a token of love and 
appreciation. 

Resolved, That a Special for the Fall of 1928, shall be the 
procuring of funds for the Hodgson-Emerald Hospital at 
Sewanee, Tenn. This is a Provincial Objective. 

RECOMMENDATIONS 

That parishes and individuals respond liberally to the appeal 
from Sanford for help in building a church. 

That the Appalachian Training School at Penland, deserves 
the interest and aid of the Woman's Auxiliary, and that funds 
be procured for this purpose. 

IMPORTANT 

All money except that for Box Work and the United Thank 
Offering must be sent to Miss Nan G. Clark, Tarboro, N. C. 
Where an exception to this is contemplated, specific instruc- 
tions will be sent to the Parish Presidents.

The Woman's Auxiliary 17 

Madam President and Ladies of the Convention: 

What shall we say for all the blessings which we have re- 
ceived during these wonderful days in Tarboro? How shall we 
adequately express our appreciation for all the good things that 
have come to us in this fortunate Parish? Truly we have had 
with us sainted spirits of the past and present during our de- 
liberations. Was ever the Woman's Auxiliary so blessed ? Three 
Bishops, five Priests, three past presidents of the Auxiliary. 
We have had the comfortable and the uncomfortable Gospel 
preached. 

Spring brought us to you with sunshine and flowers and as 
we walk around this ancient churchyard we are more impressed 
with the beautiful resurrection of our Lord. 

We have enjoyed your homes, your hospitality, your beautiful 
Parish House, erected as a memorial to our dear Bishop's 
father, who served so faithfully as Rector of this parish for 
fifty years. Your choir, but most of all your beautiful services 
in your Church, warm with the sainted spirits whose loving 
hands framed it all. 

Our evening together at the home of Miss Kate Cheshire, will 
live in our memories always. 

We have felt the spiritual blessing of the constant oversight 
of Bishop Penick as well as the indispensable help and guide he 
has been. The only note of regret we have had is that our dear 
Bishop Cheshire could not be with us in person. 

We want to acknowledge with true appreciation the full and 
active accounts of this Convention as reported in the local 
press. 

We extend our thanks to the ladies of the Presbyterian Church 
for the delightful luncheons served. 

We must all return home and put a thank offering into our 
little Blue Box for all the blessings we have received. May God 
bless us every one. 

The Committee from the Woman's Auxiliary on the Legisla- 
tive Council, Miss Sallie Dortch of Raleigh, Chairman, is stand- 
ing for the things that are uplifting — For the School for de- 
linquent girls at Efland; for the Farm Colony for Women; for 
adequate provision for the feeble-minded of both races.

18 Forty-sixth Annual Report 

After the most inspiring closing message by the Rt. Rev. 
Thos. C. Darst, Bishop of East Carolina, there was a re-dedi- 
cation of the women of the Church as follows : 

THE RE-DEDICATION 

Realizing that only through personal dedication to Jesus 
Christ, our Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human 
endeavors, we re-dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord 
Jesus Christ, to making the strength of our deeds the measure 
of our Faith ; to a sincere and simple effort in our daily living 
to follow with humility the example of our Saviour. 

The meeting adjourned to convene April 9, 1929, at the 
Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, 1ST. C. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Lyal C. Boice, Secretary. 

ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT 

Friends: 

This is my first opportunity to express my appreciation to you 
for giving me the privilege of serving the Auxiliary as Presi- 
dent. Especially do I thank you for your sympathetic coopera- 
tion. 

The work has not been borne upon the shoulders of merely a 
few. The duties of the President have been greatly lightened, 
and the efficiency of the office increased, by the cordial support 
and cheerful participation in the work of the members of the 
Auxiliary. 

It is unnecessary to review the work of 1927 in detail, as this 
will be done by the chairmen of the various departments. This 
has been a year of progress. More funds have been disbursed. 
Women are more eager to serve. Wider interest is manifested 
in study classes. Replies to letters are more prompt. Greater 
efficiency along general lines is evident. One thing yet is de- 
sired — a greater willingness to accept parish offices and responsi- 
bilities. Every woman has qualifications for some constructive 
work. Xot the talents we have not, but those that we have, 
should be the measure of our fitness for leadership. 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 19 

In a letter from Bishop Freeman, we are urged to realize the 
great importance of preparing for the General Convention to 
meet in Washington in October. 

The message of the little Blue Box must be taken everywhere, 
culminating in that triumphant service of the United Thank 
Offering on October 11th at the great Triennial. 

Dr. Franklin reports a serious decrease in the pledges of the 
Dioceses to the Church for 1928. As an Auxiliary we are "dedi- 
cated to the payment in full of all General Church Quotas." 
This means individual sustained work, and the burden of this 
deficit should rest on our hearts, until it is paid. 

The work of the young people must receive our sympathetic 
and loving help. 

In 1919 a fund was started, but not completed, to com- 
memorate the twenty-fifth Anniversary of the Consecration of 
Bishop Rowe of Alaska. This fund is known as the Bishop Rowe 
Foundation. An effort is being made to complete this fund by 
October, 1928, and we are asked to make this a Summer Special. 
Bishop Rowe has refused to tread the soft paths of life, and for 
thirty years or more ha3 traveled by water and sky, and with 
his dog trains through ice and snow. The details of this activity 
will be brought out at this meeting. 

The value of Summer Conferences cannot be over emphasized. 
One or more women should attend some Conference from each 
parish. 

Our Church Periodicals should receive more generous support. 
I venture the assertion that there is not a home in the Diocese 
without a secular paper, but how few feel the need of the litera- 
ture of the Church. 

Rural work must be stressed. 

May each of us assume a personal responsibility for this great 
work, and show the eagerness and enthusiasm for serving our 
Blessed Master, that is justified by the magnitude of the task. 

The Auxiliary is well organized — but there is a danger that 
we, to whom is committed the responsibility of leadership, be- 
come so engrossed in making plans, that the machinery of our 
work may too greatly absorb us. I pray that there may be re- 
moved from our lives every hindrance to the manifestation of 
God's redeeming love and power. 



20 Forty-sixth Annual Report 

May this annual meeting be one of great joy and inspiration, 
and while we meet for conference and legislation, may we also 
meet for renewed consecration and instruction, knowing that if 
we are doing God's bidding, He will give us power to perform 
the same. Alice Winston Spruill, President. 

REPORT OF SECRETARY 

Since the Annual Meeting of 1927, the Secretary has mailed 
notices to the members of the Executive Committee concerning 
meetings for September and March. A copy of the Minutes of 
these meetings Avas mailed to each member of the board. 

Stationery was mailed to all Diocesan officers, district chair- 
men, and branch presidents. Extracts from letters received from 
Miss Grace Lindley have been incorporated in these monthly 
communications. 

Report blanks were mailed to all branches in January. 120 
return post cards were sent to delegates. 

Programs for the Annual Meeting were mailed to all Dioc- 
esan officers, district chairmen, branch presidents, chairmen of 
committees and speakers. In connection with this it may be 
well to call attention to the necessity of reporting promptly 
change of officers. 

In all 1,535 of the above communications were sent out. In 
addition 105 personal letters were written. 

The work of the Auxiliary has increased* greatly, but by the 
use of the mimeograph, it has been possible to keep in closer 
touch with every branch, whether active or not. 

I wish to call attention to the fact that on account of serious 
illness in my family I was not present at the March meeting 
of the Executive Board, and we are indebted to Mrs. George N". 
Cooke of Rocky Mount for her kindness in recording the 
minutes of this meeting. 

The Secretary has endeavored to carry out all requests from 
the President and to perform promptly all duties required of 
her. 

I cannot close my report without thanking you for your 
cooperation, and without expressing the pleasure that has been 
mine in serving you this year. 

Ltal Caught Boice, Secretary.

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 

This is my third and last report as your Secretary of Chris- 
tian Social Service, and it is a pleasure to present an encourag- 
ing outlook. We have stumbled many times but generally up- 
ward and with progress. 

Seven Districts have sent full and comprehensive reports, and 
a partial report has come from the Eighth District. 

Around $1,200.00 has been expended by the Diocesan Treas- 
urer, an increase of $300.00 over last year. 

The Thompson Orphanage, our Diocesan Institution, is listed 
by the State Board of Charities and Public Welfare as one of 
the best child caring institutions in the State. May our ac- 
quaintanceship and interest in the Orphanage continue to grow 
from year to year. 

A detailed report of each branch is in my hands, but expense 
and shortness of time prevent report of same here. 

The work has consisted chiefly of poor relief, religious services 
in county homes, jails and prison camps, public welfare, com- 
munity uplift and education, carried on by varied programs 
suited to individual needs of each branch. 

I wish to thank you all for your patient and helpful service 
and to assure you of my abiding interest always. 

Faithfully, 
Rosa W. Bulluck, Secretary. 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 23 



REPORT OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 

For the past three years I have led the department of Re- 
ligious Education; and it has been my great privilege to see 
the work grow from small, listless beginnings to great, en- 
thusiastic proportions. The women of the Diocese are alive at 
last to the fact that "Knowledge is Power." 

They are eager to see that every woman in the Diocese of 
North Carolina shall know right things, in the right way. 

Seventy-one parishes and missions, out of a possible 82, have 
done some type of active educational work; 37 of these holding 
actual discussion groups. Five Districts, out of a possible 8, 
have reported 100 per cent in religious education — that is every 
parish or mission in the five Districts doing active educational 
work. 

I held 1 Diocesan Institute, and 9 normal classes. 
Respectfully submitted, 
Grace Hunter Mazyck, Secretary.

Amount with interest for 1926 (previously reported) 6,717.90 

Interest on above for 1927 393.93 

Total Amount January 1, 1928 $13,898.51 

Fifteen years ago the "Woman's Auxiliary held its annual 
meeting in Calvary Church, Tarboro. It is of interest to know 
that at this meeting, the Treasurer of the United Thank Offer- 
ing reported $800.05, the offering of the previous year. This 
sum was the gift of forty-six of the sixty-six branches then in 
existence. Compare these figures with those in the above report. 
In 1927 eighty-five branches gave $6,786.68. Thus we realize 
how wonderfully the offering has grown, and surely this in- 
crease in givers and gifts must mean a growth in interest and 
sympathy for the work. 

This record is an incentive for us to go forward, laboring 
more diligently to reach the goal towards which the "Woman's 



24 Forty-sixth Annual Report 

Auxiliary is striving, namely that the United Thank Offering 
shall represent the prayers and gifts of every woman and girl 
in the church, for work by women among women. 

Most of the women know the purpose of the offering and 
all are aware of the needs in the mission field. 

What has been our share, through the work of the United 
Thank Offering, in meeting these needs? Representing us in 
the field are more than two hundred United Thank Offering 
missionaries whom we are pledged to support, pledged to stand 
behind with our prayers and gifts. And these gifts and prayers 
are the measure of our gratitude for God's blessings. 

The little Blue Box is the approved method by which the 
women take part in the work of the United Thank Offering, 
and some one has said that every box which is used conscien- 
tiously stands for a gain in the spiritual life of the Church, 
greater and more precious out of all proportion in the sight of 
God, than anything the box itself may contain. 

During these few months before the Triennial meeting, let us 
give this work a more serious consideration, a more prayerful 
and thankful recognition of God's mercies; and let our Blue 
Boxes receive the expression of this thankfulness. Gathered in 
such a spirit, our Triennial gifts will be truly 

"Holy offerings, rich and rare, 
Offerings of praise and prayer. 
On His altar laid, we leave them ; 
Christ, present them ! God, receive them !" 

Mrs. W. D. Burwell, Henderson, N". C, 

Treasurer.

REPORT OF AUDIT 

From January 1, 1927, to December 31, 1927 

To the President and Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary 
to the Presiding Bishop and Council, Diocese of North Carolina. 
Pursuant to request of your Treasurer I have audited your records 
of receipts and disbursements for the period beginning January 1st, 
1927, and ending December 31st, 1927. During this period the account 
was kept by Mrs. R. B. Davis, Rocky Mount, N. C. I have carefully 
gone over all records of receipts and all vouchers showing disburse- 
ments and find them in balance. It has been the custom for the past 
few years to give a detailed report of all receipts and disbursements 
and to publish same in the Annual Report. This seems to be a very 
expensive method and I am attaching hereto and making a part of 
this report a consolidated report of receipts and disbursements, in 
addition to the regular detailed report. The balance of $427.63 on 
December 31st, 1927, is deposited in the National Bank of Rocky 
Mount, N. C. 

Allen G. Spencer, Auditor. 
Rocky Mount, N. C, March 7th, 1928.

28 Forty-sixth Annual Report 



CONVOCATION OF EALEIGH 



Reports of District Chairmen 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

In this "District" there are five counties — Northampton, Halifax, 
Edgecombe, Nash and Wilson, 17 branches of the Auxiliary, 579 
members. 

The year 1927 has been one of stupendous activity, due to the 
spiritual impetus gained in preparation for the Bishops' Crusade. 
The outward and visible signs of this are clearly shown by the fol- 
lowing : The reorganization of the branch at Spring Hope ; the in- 
creasing number that observed Intercessory Days and made Cor- 
porate Communions ; $1,273.99 for the United Thank Offering ; fifty 
per cent increase in the Supply Department ; Christian Social Service 
and Religious Education are now vital factors ; our Prayer Partner, 
Miss Helen Disbrow of Kyoto, Japan, is constantly brought before our 
hearts and minds, and a fund for a piano for her has been started ; 
a wonderful response to the Pledge Cards and to special appeals, 
the complete furnishing of a room at Patterson School. 

The two District meetings, Roanoke Rapids in May, and Enfield in 
October, are the outstanding features. They are the most convincing 
evidence of the spiritual and material development of the Auxiliary 
in the District of Edgecombe. 

Rena H. Claek, Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The District comprises the following towns : Oxford, Franklinton, 
Louisburg, Ridgeway, Townsville, Middleburg, Warrenton, Littleton 
and Henderson. 

Two District meetings have been held — one in Louisburg and one 
in Townsville — delightful socially and very helpful spiritually. 

The reports for the different parishes reveal constant activity and 
vigorous growth. Every branch is well organized and all are doing 
splendid work in every department. Educational work has apparently 
taken first place in the interest of every parish. 

Social Service has not been neglected. 

Box work has also been well done in every parish. 

The average offering per member to the United Thank Offering in 
the District is only a little over $3.00 for the year — a slight increase 
however over last year, which was about $2.50 per member. This 
increase is a cause for gratitude. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 29 

All branches show interest in Prayer Partner. Seven branches have 
contributed to Advance Work and Corporate Gift and Forward Move- 
ment. Eight parishes have observed Intercessory days. There is a 
membership of 238. The United Thank Offering, $740.00. For pledges 
and other objects, $2,315.69. 

The District is alive, alert and ready to respond to any call for 
service. 

Mrs. I. W. Hughes, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The District of Orange has 10 branches with some 240 women 
interested. The Supply Department reports over $450 in pledges and 
boxes valued, about 400 garments cut and one dozen garments made. 
Social Service shows fine cooperation with organizations already at 
work — Welfare Department, King's Daughters, Parent-Teacher As- 
sociations, Red Cross (for flood sufferers), Near East (clothing) — in 
addition to Christmas Cheer, bags for soldiers, visits to county homes 
and jails, two Christmas trees, assistance for needy families, aid 
to Valle Crucis and the Thompson Orphanage. There was a good 
response to special appeals — Miss Gordon's salary, Patterson School, 
Woodleaf, blankets for Penland School. Several branches tell of 
flowers and cards for the sick, parties for the Y. P. S. L., choir sup- 
per, Parish entertainments. Our Secretary of Religious Education re- 
ports this District as 100 per cent active, showing that each branch 
is following suggested courses of study or reading. The U. T. O. is 
over $500. All money handled in the District is well over $3,000.00. 
Building funds for three churches have received contributions. Re- 
pairs on one rectory were $500. Prayer Books and Hymnals were 
bought. A number of Intercessory Days were observed, also Cor- 
porate Communions and one branch joined in the World Day Prayer 
for Missions. A splendid meeting was held at St. Phillip's Church, 
Durham, on October 25th, 1927. 

Mrs. Collier Cobb, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF WAKE 

Number of branches, 9; members, 396 (a gain of 18) ; cash realized 
for all purposes, $5,858 (a gain of $158). Boxes valued at $991.44. 

The reports reveal a better grasp on the part of individual mem- 
bers of what the Auxiliary stands for. Leaders have emerged ; 
others are in the making. Work in the "Five fields" is becoming 
the ideal of branch after branch. While maintaining or even raising 
the standard of pledges to the Auxiliary, an aroused social conscience 
is expressing itself in many worth-while ways. Christ Church Service 
League is notable for her work in behalf of St. Saviour's Mission 



30 Forty-sixth Annual Report 

and Thompson Orphanage ($1,590). The two Good Shepherd branches 
have each gone a step higher in the Ascending Scale. St. Saviour's 
is deriving inspiration from a carefully planned Year Book ; she 
ranked highest in attendance at the spring meeting at Erwin, and was 
a charming hostess to the fall meeting. Wake Forest has made her 
best showing this year. Smithfield and Erwin excel in their local 
Social work, but respond generously, as does St. Mary's also, to 
the Diocesan obligations and special calls. There's need for some of 
us to move to Selma to live, lest the two or three faithful and lonely 
ones there grow fainthearted. 

Emilie R. Holmes, Chairman. 



CONVOCATION OF CHARLOTTE 



Reports of District Chairmen 



DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

The Woman's Auxiliary of Forsyth-Rowan during 1927, has gone 
forward in the work with its customary zeal. This District was 
honored in having the Annual Diocesan meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary held at St. Luke's, Salisbury. Two splendid District meet- 
ings were held at Advance and Cooleemee. At Cooleemee, a Blue 
Box Pageant was successfully given by women of Salisbury branches. 
Each department has moved forward in its respective lines, and the 
secretaries have done fine work. Of especial note is that of the Prayer 
Partnership Correspondent, whose efforts have produced splendid 
results. 

The United Thank Offering was good. 

The Supply (Box) Department work valuation amounts to nearly 
$1,300.00. Generous contributions were made to the Christmas Cheer 
and other emergency funds. 

Work was excellently done for the Chapel at N. C. C. W. 

Our principal Christian Social Service work is again the Valle 
Crucis scholarship, but outstanding activities of certain branches, 
both small and large, merit special comment, particularly that of St. 
Paul's, Winston-Salem ; Grace, Lexington ; and St. Paul's, Salisbury. 
The efforts and sacrifices of each branch brought a broader concep- 
tion of the privileges and opportunities of this work and we shall 
strive for greater achievements. About seven thousand dollars was 
contributed to all causes. 

Mrs. E. F. Guilfokd, Chairman. 



The Woman's Auxiliaky 31 



DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

Two enthusiastic and well attended meetings of the District, in 
May at Epiphany, Leaksville, and in October at Holy Trinity, Greens- 
boro, and definite progress in some departments of Auxiliary work, 
were the evidences of interest and growth in the District during 
1927. The membership in this District includes six women who give 
their full time to Christian Social Service and Missionary work, 
so these departments have received special attention in some branches. 
Every branch contributed to the Box work. Practical interest was 
shown in the Prayer Partner, Miss Hayes, of Porto Rico, by a sale of 
articles made in St. Andrew's Craft School, of which she is super- 
visor, and by a box of gifts at Christmas. 

The most unique activity was the raising of a sweet potato crop by 
St. Andrew's Branch, Rockingham County, to help meet their financial 
obligations, and the most interesting development was the organiza- 
tion by the Holy Comforter Branch, Burlington, of an Auxiliary 
circle among the deaf women of the Parish. 

Anna Clark Gordon, Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The two District meetings were held, in the spring at Monroe, 
and in the fall at Concord. The interest and inspiration at these 
meetings, together with the presence and spiritual counsel of our 
Bishop Penick, is productive of great good. 

The reports of departments show willingness on part of women to 
carry out the plans given to us by the Diocesan officers. A special 
offering was made to the Mississippi Flood sufferers through Bishop 
Bratton, of $108.06. The District, through the branches, has met all 
financial obligations to the Diocese, contributing between six and 
seven thousand dollars. 

Special interest is taken in Educational work ; Christian Social 
Service ; Supply (Box) work and in the welfare of our Prayer Partner, 
Mrs. Mary E. Coffin, Ethete, Wyo. The "Advance Work and Corporate 
Gift" was reported entirely paid for the year, also Bishop Tuttle 
Memorial Fund. Branches either sent a delegate to one of the 
Summer Conferences or helped to do so, and all branches held study 
classes during Lent, subject being, "The Church Awake." 

The United Thank Offering amounted to over $530.00. 

Edna D. Garibaldi, Chairman. 



32 Forty-sixth Annual Report 



REPORT OF DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

The District of Richmond is pleased to report the addition of its 
near neighbor, Moore County, to the group of four other counties 
already belonging to it ; also that a branch of the Auxiliary has since 
been organized at Southern Pines, making an enrollment of 69 mem- 
bers. 

Two enthusiastic, well attended District meetings were held, the 
first in May at Wadesboro and the other in October at Rockingham. 
The secretaries of each Department reported all branches active and 
doing good work. Especially is this true of the Educational De- 
partment, Rockingham and Hamlet having done particularly fine 
work. Wadesboro is our oldest parish and largest contributor. 

The Social Service Department has the distinction of having been 
commended by the Diocesan Social Service Secretary for its splendid 
work and report, and the Supply Department, closely united to it, 
has responded actively to all calls. Three boxes were sent to the 
Thompson Orphanage, one to the flood sufferers, and about 50 
garments have been made. Interest in the Blue Boxes has grown and 
contributions have increased. 

Intercessory Days have been observed, and all branches report 
corporate communions. Our Prayer Partner has not been neglected. 
Three young girls attended Camp Penick and one member of the 
Auxiliary went to Blue Ridge. 

The District has as yet no Recruiting officer, but over and above 
all that we have done, stands out a bright young girl, Wilma Biggs, 
from Rockingham, who has given herself and has entered a School 
in Philadelphia to be trained for missionary work. 

Financial Report 

Total money for the District contributed through the 

Auxiliary work at home and abroad $597.36 

Supply Work 35.50 

United Thank Offering 235.29 

Easdale Shaw, Chairman. 

REPORT OF CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

There are thirty-four branches of the Church Periodical Club 
in the Diocese of North Carolina, about half of which are active 
at the present time. The report for the year 1927, is incom- 
plete due to the fact that only a small per cent of these branches 
sent in statements of their year's work. The work reported is as 
follows : 



The Woman's Auxiliary 33 

Current periodicals sent regularly 49 

Donors of above periodicals 30 

Odd magazines sent 1,672 

Money spent $3.00 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary M. Hoke, Director. 



REPORT ON OFFERING OF LIFE 

In the late fall a letter was mailed to each District Recruiting 
Secretary (to the District Chairman where there is not a Recruiting 
Secretary), setting forth the outline of work the committee wishes 
undertaken. Three times since the Department Chairman has writ- 
ten to each District, but the responses have come slowly — some have 
not replied. 

Each District was asked to send a delegate to some summer con- 
ference, either to Blue Ridge, Valle Crucis or Sewanee, each parish 
contributing to the fund to defray her expenses. 

The following young men, all from the District of Mecklenburg, are 
studying for the ministry, while one will do so later : 

David Yates, University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. 

Allen Person, Episcopal Seminary, Alexandria, Virginia. 

Thomas Simons Clarkson, Episcopal Seminary, Alexandria, Vir- 
ginia. 

Andrew Milstead, at present Student Secretary, University of North 
Carolina. 

The following also are studying for the ministry : 

Frank Pulley, of Tarboro, now at DuBose School. 

Ernest Winborne, of Tarboro, at Chapel Hill. 

D. P. Moore, of Winston-Salem, at Episcopal Seminary, Alexandria, 
Virginia. 

Gregory Maurice Horsfield. 

Albert E. Sanderson. 

It should be our privilege to pray for them daily. 

Each District must have a Recruiting Secretary, who is to see that 
each parish branch has a Recruiting Secretary. Special attention is 
called to this need. 

It is a pleasure to report that there are two recruits for the mission 
field, Miss Mary Roberts Russell, from St. Paul's, Winston-Salem, 
and Miss Wilmer Biggs, from the District of Richmond, now in train- 
ing at Philadelphia. 

Mary Hilliard Hinton, Chairman.

34 Forty-sixth Annual Report 



REPORT OF TREASURE AND TRINKET FUND 

Madam President and Members of the Auxiliary : 

Since our last meeting the amount of gold has been slightly 
increased, but we still need more that we may have enough to 
make chalice and paten which we have voted to give to the 
Church for the Deaf in Durham. The cost of making the two 
pieces will be $106.00. The amount of money on hand is $8.00. 

Latjra June Alston, Chairman. 
Raleigh, N. C., April 2, 1928. 



REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

The report for the "Prayer Partnership Plan" must be brief 
I am told, so I cannot give a separate statement on the work 
in each District. The various reports, however, are splendid. 
Most of the secretaries advise that they keep in "close touch" 
with their Prayer Partners by letter, that they have prayers 
for them regularly, and that they send gifts and cards — especially 
at Christmas and Easter — and best of all, that they hear from 
their Prayer Partners in the mission field expressing their 
appreciation of our interest in their work, although I am sure 
we should be the ones who are grateful for having even so 
small a part in this work. 

The Plan is now most successful in our Diocese, and we have 
gotten the viewpoint that Miss Lindley desired when she organ- 
ized the "Prayer Partnership Plan" some years ago. She said, 
"We wish to have our missionaries feel that they are definitely 
and constantly in our thoughts," and also to "give them the 
feeling of the supporting strength of the Church at home, and 
bring to the Church at home the realization of its responsibility 
for the workers they send to the field." It is always good to be 
remembered, and especially when you are far from home and 
have great responsibility and care. 

Let us not forget that, above all, the plan is just what the 
name says : We are "Prayer Partners." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Katherine S. Gaul, Secretary. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 35 



REPORT OF THE INTER-RACIAIi COMMITTEE 

This Committee is appointed to cooperate with the Auxiliary 
of the Colored Convocation in this Diocese. 

Our first work during the past year was in preparation for 
the Bishop's Crusade. 

In Rocky Mount, for instance, where prayer meetings were 
regularly held by the Auxiliary in the Colored Mission, our 
Diocesan President attended these cottage meetings and helped 
to prepare for the Bishop's Crusade. 

During last December our Auxiliaries made an organized 
effort to meet with the branches of the colored Auxiliaries dur- 
ing the first two weeks in January. 

The Auxiliary of the Colored Convocation is an organization 
in itself, with its own officers. 

All advances for cooperation with us have been cordially re- 
ceived. 

Mrs. Weston, the president, asks for our help. 

Please, first, get the sympathetic help of the clergymen in 
charge of the colored mission in your parish. 

Where the Auxiliary is well organized we are not so much 
needed. 

Where there is no organization, or only a struggling one, our 
help can be effectively given. 

In many places in our Diocese the Auxiliary has been an 
active element in establishing a Parish. 

In this work we can have a large share in furthering His 
Kingdom. 

Your committee asks for your cooperation and more earnest 
effort in helping to strengthen the Auxiliary in our Colored 
Convocation. 

Prayer and sympathetic cooperation are needed for this 
work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Warren W. Way, Chairman. 



36 Forty-sixth Annual Report 



REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY OF THE 
COLORED CONVOCATION 

Madam President and Members of the Auxiliary : 

At our last Annual Meeting which was held in St. Augustine 
School, I was elected to succeed Mrs. Delany as President of 
the Woman's Auxiliary of the Colored Convocation. 

We have received very encouraging reports from some of the 
branches. These reports show progress and a new awakening. 

Good reports have come in about the Corporate Gift and the 
Inter-racial Meetings. We feel that immeasurable blessings will 
follow these meetings. Surely the task of spreading the Gospel 
is no exception to the rule that cooperation brings success. 

We are making a survey to get in touch with church women 
who are attending or are teaching in the several schools in the 
Diocese. We are planning to organize branches where they are 
wanted. We feel that to keep in ; touch with our students and 
teachers will be a means of extending the work of the Auxiliary 
in a new field, and keeping the people awake to the facts that 
we need them and that they can be of service wherever they are. 

The question, "How; can we help ?" comes from you over and 
over. The answer is, you are helping now, by giving in the real 
Auxiliary way, by prayer, by gifts and by service. 

"And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto me." 

Mrs. M. M. Weston, President. 

REPORT OF THE GIRLS' FRIENDLY SOCIETY 

It is with pleasure that I can reiterate my 1927 report of the 
Girl's Friendly Society in the Diocese — with one exception — the 
Lodge building needs, and must have, a new roof and some 
minor repairs. The Lodge is self-supporting when the rooms are 
full, with the $1,000.00 from the Community Chest fund — 
but with large items like the above, the help must come from 
outside the Lodge. The Lodge belongs to the Episcopal Church 
in this Diocese, and should be sustained by the branches in 
the Diocese. The four active branches are proof enough to 
warrant a branch in every Church in the Diocese. 



The "Woman's Auxiliary 37 

The object of the Girl's Friendly Society is to unite, for the 
glory of God, in one fellowship of prayer and service, the women 
and girls of the nation, to uphold the Christian standard of 
purity of thought, word and deed. 

During the past fifty years the Girl's Friendly Society has 
grown from one to 53,619 in membership, and can look back 
with gratitude upon its useful service, and the long line of 
women and girls whose lives have been influenced by what the 
Girl's Friendly Society has meant to them. 

Let us look forward in this good work and help to make of the 
girls of today — the mothers and home-makers of tomorrow — 
that we would have them be. 

Mrs. Gilbert Hay, President. 



REPORT OF ADVANCE WORK AND CORPORATE GIFT 

Miss Emma J. Hall of Charlotte reported the Corporate Gift 
completed. The Advance Work, which means the Chapel for the

PRAYERS FOR USE IN AUXILIARY MEETINGS 

Auxiliary Prayer 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thank- 
ful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for 
His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advance- 
ment of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we 
pray Thee, with such love and faith that we may be willing to 
go unto the uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. 
This, and all things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

For Noontide, Daily 

Lord of the Harvest, send forth men full of faith and of the 
Holy Ghost as laborers into Thy harvest; through Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved; through Thy merits and mercies, 
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever 
One God, world without end. Amen. 

Daily Prayer 

O God, for as much as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Lord, pardon what we have been; sanctify what we are; order 
what we shall be; that Thine may be the glory and ours the 
eternal salvation, through Christ our Lord. Amen. 
Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose 
flocks are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts 
the hope of a better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep 
in scattered places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; 
Who art with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, 
world without end. Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth 
more laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special 
grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the Field, 
and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



given to them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank 
Offering of prayer and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to 
the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Use Before and At the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can en- 
able us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the 
dignity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as 
our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; 
to those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the 
discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Prayer Partner 

Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 
workers in Thy service: bless, we pray Thee, this Thy servant 

whom Thou hast called to a like ministration. 

Bestow on her the gifts of wisdom and sound judgment, of sim- 
plicity and singleness of heart. Sustain her in all her labor of 
love. May she speak peace to troubled hearts and bring many 
souls into the joy and liberty of the Gospel. Be Thou, O Lord, 
her guide in doubt, her strength in weariness, and her comfort 
in sorrow. Inspire her with Thy gracious promise that though 
the sower may go forth weeping, bearing precious seed, he will 
come again with joy, bringing his sheaves with him. Grant this 
for the sake of Him Who went about doing good, Thy Son, Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Thanksgivings 

We give Thee Humble thanks, O Heavenly Father, that Thou 
hast vouchsafed to call us to the knowledge of Thy grace and 
faith in Thee; increase this knowledge and confirm this faith in 
us evermore. Grant that we may daily be renewed by Thy Holy 
Spirit, so that all sinful affections may die in us, and that all 
things belonging to the Spirit may live and grow in us; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee humble 
thanks for all the great things Thou hast done and are doing for 
the children of men; for the opening of heathen lands to the 
light of Thy truth; for making paths into the deep waters and 
highways in the desert; for knitting nation to nation in the bond 
of fellowship, and for the planting of Thy Church in all the 
earth. O merciful Father, in whom the whole family is named, 
fill full our hearts with grateful love for this Thy goodness, 
granting grace henceforth to serve Thee better and more per- 
fectly to know Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT THE ANNUAL MEETING, 1929 

The Annual Convention of the Woman's Auxiliary having 
heard from our Diocesan Executive Secretary, the Rev. Elwood 
L. Haines, of our increased Diocesan Apportionment for the 
work of the National Council, and having heard his suggestion 
that the amount contributed to the Forward Movement by the 
Woman's Auxiliary be no longer credited to the quotas of the 
Individual Parishes and Missions of the Diocese: 

Be it Resolved, That the Executive Board be authorized to 
give this matter serious consideration and to take such im- 
mediate action in reference to the use of our Forward Move- 
ment contributions as they deem expedient. 

Christ Church, Raleigh, Service League passed a resolution 
at its April meeting as follows : 

Resolved, That we recommend to the Executive Board to give 
careful consideration to the question of amending Article VIII, 
section 2, lines 1-2 of the Constitution which reads : "Any dele- 
gate may nominate, but a branch may cast but one vote," to 
read "each delegate is entitled to a vote." 

IMPORTANT 

All money except that for Box Work and the United 
Thank Offering must be sent to Miss Nan G. Clark, Tar- 
boro, N. C. Where an exception to this is contemplated,

The forty-seventh annual meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary 
to the National Council of the Diocese of North Carolina was 
opened with evening prayer at 7 :45 p.m. in the Church of the 
Good Shepherd, Raleigh, April 9, 1929.

Bishop Penick presented the two speakers of the evening, 
Rev. G. Warfield Hobbs, Editor of the Spirit of Missions, and

The keynote of Mr. Hobbs' address was the Evangel of Printers' 
Ink, while Captain Mountford laid great stress on Personal 
Religion and Personal Evangelism. 

The offering at this service will be used to establish a Con- 
ference in Miss Alice Gregg's field in China, to be known as 
The China Conference Eund. 

On Wednesday, April 10th, at 7 :30 a.m. early Communion 
was celebrated by Bishop Cheshire. The United Thank Offer- 
ing was presented at this service, followed with the commemora- 
tion service for the departed.

Mrs. E. S. Spruill. Devotional exercises were conducted by 
Bishop Penick. 

Mrs. J. S. Holmes, in a most gracious manner, welcomed the 
Auxiliary most cordially to the Church of the Good Shepherd, 
to which Mrs. Dorian Blair, of Greensboro, responded. In wel- 
coming the Auxiliary Mrs. Holmes asked to add "In the name of 
us all, a word of appreciation of the work of our leader and 
President. She has not spared herself in the effort to carry out 
her high ideal of holding the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese 
of North Carolina to its traditions of the past and ever to a

An invitation to meet in St. Paul's, Winston-Salem, next

Our Second Diocesan Objective was presented by Miss Kate 
Albertson. She spoke of the work and growth of St. Mary's

Following this the Group Conferences were held. At 4:30

16 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

England and one from America, also made a few remarks. Mrs. 
W. J. Gordon strongly endorsed the work done by the Church 
Army in Spray, as did also Rev. Duncan Thomas, who has 
recently been associated with the Army men at a mission at 
that place. 

Thursday morning, April 11, 7 :30 a.m., Holy Communion 
was celebrated by Bishop Penick. 

At 9 :45 a.m. the business session opened with Devotional 
Exercises. 

An interesting report was made by the Recruiting Secretary, 
Miss Mary Hilliard Hinton, while Mrs. H. G. Cooper, in behalf 
of 'N. C. C. "W". made another appeal for funds for the chapel 
there. 

Mrs. George X. Cooke, Publicity Chairman, urged subscrip- 
tions to church papers. 

A plea was made by the President and the Secretary for more 
accurate and more legible reports. 

The District Chairmen presented reports of the year's work 
in their respective districts. 

An inspiring appeal was made by Mrs. Lyman Cotten in 
behalf of St. Luke's International Hospital, and a splendid 
account of the work at St. Luke's was presented by Dr. Mabel 
Elliott, the only American representative on the staff. Every 
one was greatly impressed by the charming personality of Dr. 
Elliott and the strength of her message. 

Noonday Prayer was conducted by Rev. L. F. Kent, Arch- 
deacon of the Yukon. Rev. Mr. Kent gave a most graphic 
account of the life in Alaska. 

In the name of the Church Service League of Christ Church, 
Rev. M. A. Barber invited all delegates and guests to their 
Parish House for lunch. 

Miss Mary Hoke reported the work of the Church Periodical 
Club and outlined proposed plans for the future. 

Mrs. G. B. Lewis, Social Service Secretary, in her report 
requested each member to get a copy of "Short Meditations on 
the Lord's Prayer," by Dean Lathrop. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 17 

Mrs. James Cordon moved that we send our love and best 
wishes by Bishop Cheshire to Mrs. Cheshire, who is sick at her 
home. 

The following Diocesan officers were elected : Mrs. Howard 
Hartzell, Box Work Secretary; Mrs. Alfred Laurence, IT. T. 0. 
Custodian, and Miss Rena Clark, Woman Representative on 
the Diocesan Council. 

The Chairman of the Resolutions Committee read the resolu- 
tions that had been presented. Several were adopted and will 
be incorporated in the Annual Report. 

In the absence of the Chairman of the Courtesy Committee, 
Mrs. Peoples offered this report, prepared by Mrs. Bridgers : 
"When a Convention as large as this one runs without a 
hitch — perfectly smooth in every detail — all of us know the 
labor and thought given to it by the parish in which it is held, 
and we congratulate you on the success of your undertaking. 

The Convention may be said to have been blessed with and 
by Bishops, and we want to thank each of them for the inspir- 
ing message he has brought to us. 

It is especially gratifying to have Bishop Cheshire with us. 
He was absent on account of illness the last time we met. 

We realized anew, yesterday afternoon when we were par- 
taking of St. Mary's gracious hospitality in their beautiful old 
Assembly Hall, the strength she has always been to the church, 
and we may look with calmness into the future and see these 
splendid girls grown into womanhood carrying on the work of 
the Auxiliary. 

We wish to thank our President for the splendid program and 
for the distinguished and interesting speakers she has brought 
to us from the mission field. 

Their message is a clear call for a greater effort on our part 
to do the Master's business at home and abroad. 

We feel intensely grateful to all who have helped in any way 
to make this, our 47th Convention of the Woman's Auxiliary, 
the best we have ever had, and in the name of all the delegates 
I wish to thank you. 



FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



Let us show our sincere thankfulness for this Convention, 
stressing Personal Religion and Evangelism by doing as our 
Lord bids us do, 'Go ye into all the world and preach the 
gospel.' " 

Luncheon was served at 1 o'clock in the parish house of 
Christ Church. After lunch there was a short meeting. At 
this time Bishop Cheshire spoke a word of appreciation for the 
work done by the Woman's Auxiliary. 

Miss Denson thanked us for what we were doing for the 
chapel at iST. C. C. W., while Miss Nannie Crowder, of St. 
Mary's School, gave thanks for the financial help which the 
Woman's Auxiliary had given, thus enabling St. Mary's girls 
to attend summer conferences. 

Miss Emma Hall read the letter from Miss Mary Wood 
McKenzie, expressing her appreciation of the gift of $200 from 
the Woman's Auxiliary. 

The President kindly thanked the Secretary for promptly and 
efficiently performing her duties. 

What more fitting close could have been to this wonderful 
Convention than the closing message given by Bishop Penick, 
and the rededication by all the women of the Church. 



Faithfully submitted, 

Lyal C. Boice, Secretary. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 19 

ADDRESS OF PRESEDENT 

Greetings to this fine body of women! 

I do not believe there could be found elsewhere such a fine 
company of workers, and my association with you has been a 
privilege and a joy. 

In many respects the year 1928 has been a year of progress. 
Great strides have been made in plans for the work of Christian 
Education, Social Service, and in the Supply Department. 

Xorth Carolina again leads in the Fourth Province in its 
United Thank Offering. 

It is thought best to devote little time at this Annual Meeting 
to statistical reports. In every department, these will be printed 
in full in the Year Book, and every woman should secure a 
copy. 

Therefore, I cannot emphasize too strongly the great need 
and importance of District Meetings, where questions may be 
asked and problems can be discussed and settled in a more inti- 
mate way. 

That we may have a broader vision for the work of the 
Woman's Auxiliary, inspirational messages will be brought us 
in these two days from the foremost leaders in the Church. 
These men and women have paused in their daily round to 
come to us from Alaska, China, Japan, Africa, England and 
America. 

More than two hundred women from our Diocese had the 
privilege of attending the great Triennial in "Washington. These 
women have experienced the inspiration gained by sitting at 
the feet of trained teachers. 

Several officers are to be chosen today. May we be con- 
strained to elect women who will be unsparing of their time and 
talents, not counting the cost, and who will welcome construc- 
tive criticism. These officers must be chosen prayerfully and 
with care. The time is short, and I recommend that it should 
not be wasted in merely complimentary nominations. 

Likewise, great care should be exercised in electing your 
parish officers, only those being chosen who will study condi- 
tions and needs of the Church. An informed Auxiliary means 
an interested one. That our apportionments have been raised 
is not sufficient; we should experience the joy of service, and 



20 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

our faces should be aglow with pleasure iu our Auxiliary work. 

Your sympathetic cooperation is asked for the work of the 
young women. Especially would I appeal to the youth of today 
to sign up for work while they are filled with zeal and vigor, 
and in full possession of all their faculties. 

Rural work should he stressed. 

We note the thoroughness which characterized the recent 
political campaigns. Groups were organized to go into the 
remote corners to bring women to the polls. This gives me an 
idea that in the Church we too may organize to go to the 
country, as well as the towns, and bring the isolated women to 
a realization that each soul is needed. There are too many ab- 
sentees in the Church today. There is no place for a laggard in 
the Church of God. 

We must remember that the missionary work of the Church 
takes no vacation, and that the work is advanced solely by our 
prayers and our offerings. There seems a prejudice existing con- 
cerning the mention of money. Let us yield to money its legiti- 
mate place in the work of establishing the Kingdom. In one 
instance our Master needed money so urgently that He resorted 
to a miracle to secure it. 

The epidemic of 1928 has taken toll of many of our mem- 
bers, and with bowed heads we record the loss of some of our 
best loved and most valued women. Their influence will be long 
felt. Only in the diversion of service can our sorrows be healed. 

After five years in Liberia, on January 24th Miss Maryland 
B. Nichols, our Prayer Partner for the District of Richmond, 
succumbed to fever and passed away in far off Africa. Surely 
by this the need for a hospital and doctor at Cape Mount is 
brought home to us. 

May this Annual Meeting be one of great joy and inspira- 
tion, and while we meet for conference and legislation, we also 
meet for renewed consecration and instruction. 

May we return to our homes determined that in future the 
words of Judges 7 :21 may apply to each of us : 

"And they stood, every man in his place." 

"For work to do, and strength to do the work, we thank thee, 
Lord." Your friend and servant, 

Alice Winston Spruill, President. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 21 

REPORT OF THE SECRETARY 

Notices of the March, September and November meetings of the 
Executive Board were mailed to all members. A copy of the minutes 
of these meetings was mailed to each member of the board. 

Stationery was mailed to all Diocesan officers. 

Annual reports were sent to every Diocesan, District and Branch 
officer and to chairmen of committees. 

Report blanks were mailed to all branches and return post-cards 
were sent to delegates. 

Programs for the Annual Meeting were mailed to all Diocesan 
officers, District Chairmen, Branch Presidents, speakers and chair- 
men of committees. 

Extracts from letters received from various National officers have 
been incorporated in the monthly letters. 

In all 1,789 of the above communications were sent out. In addi- 
tion 75 personal letters were written. 

While the volume of the work devolving upon the Secretary has 
materially increased, the duties of the office have not been unduly 
burdensome because of the promptness and efficiency of the Diocesan, 
District and Branch Chairmen. 

Again I wish to thank you for your cooperation and for the privi- 
lege of serving you. L. C. Boice, Secretary.

22 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 

A careful study of reports from seven districts shows good 
work being done, and we hope with each passing year as more 
branches realize the importance of systematizing their work and 
keeping records of expenditures that there will be even greater 
progress shown. The sum of $7,456.54 reported does not cover 
all spent by the branches for this work in the diocese. 

Of the 110 children at the Thompson Episcopal Home, 58 are 
clothed by branches in the Diocese of North Carolina. Nine- 
teen not yet provided for. "We hope Branches will keep in close 
touch with their children now and also later on when they 
return to their own homes. 

Our women are carrying on every phase of welfare, uplift, 
hospital and institutional work. Some interest in rural work 
has developed, and some Branches have done good work among 
colored people. 

Study along social service lines, particularly stressed this 
year by this department, is about one-fourth what we would 
like to see it. We must be informed to carry on this important 
work, and feel sure of increased interest in study during 1929. 

Faithfully, 

Mrs. G. B. Lewis, Secretary. 

REPORT OF RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 

As Diocesan Educational Secretary, I have an encouraging 
report to offer : 

I believe every active branch of the Auxiliary in our Diocese 
does some regular study. Forty-eight new leaders have offered 
their talents in spreading the knowledge of Christ's Kingdom, 
and the faithful workers who have led study classes through 
years of devoted work can see the fruit of their efforts. 

Forty-four discussion groups have been held. 

Through the use of the "Kalendar of Daily Bible Headings" 
an increasing number of our members read together daily. 

The "Spirit of Missions" is read more widely. 

We are learning the educational value of the Supply Depart- 
ment. Social Service is part of our study program. 

Whereas a few years ago one study class only was held dur- 
ing a year, now many branches have printed or typewritten 
programs with some phase of the Church's work studied at every 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 23 

meeting, besides certain weeks set apart for more intensive 
study. 

Each year more members attend summer conferences. 
Twenty-two did so last year. 

Two Diocesan Institutes, one in each Convocation, were held 
to train educational leaders. 

Let us pray for the time to come when every member of the 
Auxiliary will be eager to learn of Him and His Kingdom. 
Faithfully yours, 

Mrs. Warren W. Wat, Secretary. 

REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Amount received during the year 1928 $ 7,127.48 

Amount with interest, for 1926 and 1927 (previously 

reported) 13,898.49 

Interest on above for 1928 509.60 

Amount received from Colored Convocation 432.50 

Total amount placed on altar at Triennial in Wash- 
ington $ 21,968.07 

The past history of the United Thank Offering has been called 
a "glorious achievement," and I have no doubt that the women 
of the Church will see that the future will be a more glorious 
one. 

There is much to encourage us in the future of the United 
Thank Offering work in our own Diocese. Judging from the 
response received from the parishes the women everywhere 
seem more interested. Scattered over the Diocese are a number 
of missions and small parishes in which there is no branch of 
the Woman's Auxiliary. Due to the efforts of the United 
Thank Offering Treasurer and of the district chairman and 
custodians the women in many of these places have organized 
and are doing splendid United Thank Offering work. Three 
such places were added to my list during 1928, and as this 
report goes to the printers a small group of women in another 
community sent a request for blue boxes in order to begin work 
this spring. 

These are healthy signs, and I believe we can look forward to 
the time not far distant when we shall reach every woman in 



24 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

the Diocese and enlist her interest in the work of the United 
Thank Offering. 

Praying that God will continue to bless the work, I am, 

Faithfully, 
SrsAN Gilliam Burwell, Treasurer.

28 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



CONVOCATION OF RALEIGH 



Reports of District Chairmen 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The District of Edgecombe has seventeen branches of the Auxiliary 
functioning in all departments. Each branch is well equipped with 
officers, possessing a keen sense of responsibility, and the chairman 
is in direct touch with each either by telephone, letter or personal 
contact. 

From a material standpoint the "District'' has achieved much ; 
contributed to all "specials" on the Pledge Card, gave liberally to 
Forward Movement Fund, made special offerings at the observance of 
the four Intercessory Days, responded to the appeals made at Con- 
vention and other times, clothed ten children at Thompson Home, and 
raised a fund for the Prayer Partner, Miss Disbrow, of Japan. 

This District is extremely fortunate in the personnel of its "Sec- 
retaries,*' women eager to develop their department with the ideal 
and aim of improvement each year. Two fine meetings of the Dis- 
trict were held, Rocky Mount in May and Halifax in November, char- 
acterized by splendid attendance and enthusiasm. Every branch, 
with one exception, attended the Annual Meeting in Tarboro last 
spring : several had good attendance at General Convention in Wash- 
ington and the Educational Institute in Raleigh. Probably the 
United Thank Offering claims a larger share of the interest of the 
women than any other phase — places where there is no active organi- 
zation made their contributions. 

From these tangible statistics and signs, I cannot but infer that 
the District of Edgecombe is in a healthy, wholesome condition, de- 
sirous of participating in the Church's mission and evincing an intel- 
ligent interest in all Auxiliary matters, with a wealth of energy and 
resources yet untried. But of that higher and intangible side which 
cannot be expressed in concrete terms, I can only state that I am 
conscious of a very serious and earnest spirit that motivates their 
every action. My contact with them has been redundant with help 
for myself, and I feel that I must acknowledge the debt that I owe 
them. 

And now as the term of my office is drawing to a close, may I sug- 
gest what I hope has been the fundamental design in my adminis- 
tration, namely this : that the first emphasis of the Auxiliary must 
be spiritual and then educational, and as a result action necessarily 
follows. That I may have accomplished little does not prevent me 
from realizing the potentiality of a District using such methods. 

Ren a H. Clark, Chairman. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 29 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

It is indeed a great pleasure to me to make this my first report as 
Chairman of the District of Granville. My predecessors have laid a 
sure foundation, and with the type of women in our District we are 
sure to go forward in the work for our Master. 

The District is composed of the following towns : Henderson, 
Oxford, Warrenton, Louisburg, Littleton, Townsville, Franklinton, 
Ridgeway, and Middleburg. 

Two District meetings were held : one in Warrenton in May, the 
other in Oxford in November. 

The United Thank Offering amounted to $795.S9, a decided increase 
over the year before. 

The Supply Department gave in money $683.48 with 517 garments 
cut and 159 garments made valued at $161.55, making a total value 
of $845.03. Every branch helped, making Granville 100 per cent 
District with eight branches on Ideal Honor Roll. 

The Social Service Department has been very active, $225 spent, 
not reported through Diocesan Treasurer ; $115 spent on clothes for 
four orphans at Thompson Orphanage. 

Special interest was taken in Educational Work — Prayer Partner 
and a hearty response to Auxiliary memoranda. 

All financial obligations have been met, and all reports reveal a 
better grasp on the part of the individual members of what the 
Auxiliary stands for. 

Mrs. Maurice Clifton, Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The District has encouraging reports from the small branches as 
well as from the larger ones. 

The Thank Offering was greatly increased over the previous year, 
one large branch almost doubling its amount. Several Communion 
Services were held on October 11th, as well as at other times. We 
were well represented at the General Convention. 

Supply Department. There was response from every branch in 
pledges or boxes and cutting and sewing. Much interest was ex- 
hibited in the Orphanage and in clothing our orphans. 

Religious Education. Reports of study programs and Lenten classes 
have been made. Books recommended by National Council have been 
used, also other literature. 

Social Service. Excellent local work has been done — visits to jails 
and county homes, cheer at Thanksgiving and Christmas, assistance 
to the Y. P. S. L., and a variety of Parish work. An outstanding 
event in the District is the joining of St. Philip's and St. Margaret's 
Auxiliaries of Durham to form the W. S. L. Much interest and 
enthusiasm have followed this step. 



3 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

During the year six members of the Auxiliary have been claimed 
by death, leaving us the poorer for their going, the richer for the 
memories they have left us. 

The meeting in Pittsboro, November 14th, was well attended. 

Mrs. Collier Cobb, Chairman. 

REPORT OP THE DISTRICT OF WAKE 

In looking back over the work of the District during the past year 
I find the following: 

Two well attended, enthusiastic meetings (held in Wake Forest and 
Smithfield), which probably served to stimulate the interest of the 
several branches in their own work. Certainly the reports of the 
branches reveal a real understanding of the aims and ideals of the 
Auxiliary and a live interest in meeting their share of our Diocesan 
obligations. In a number of instances a larger share than ever 
before has been assumed. I note also a constantly developing interest 
in local welfare work, evidenced in part by the fact that when the 
resources are not equal to the needs, the women buckle down to 
hard work, giving their time and talents to making money to relieve 
the necessities of the poor. 

Again, I note better study classes than ever before, no doubt due 
to the fact that our stimulating Diocesan Educational Secretary is 
one of our very selves. 

The other specially noteworthy fact is a growing consciousness of 
ourselves not as an aggregation of units, but as a unit, which should 
be responsible for creating new centers of spiritual life within the 
District — not so much by adding members to the Auxiliary as adding 
members to the Church. But just here we find ourselves faced with 
practical difficulties and obstacles. The seeking out of favorable 
openings and the planting of Sunday schools cannot be done by 
women alone, nor by men alone. Our vision for the District is : a 
helping hand by the whole to the weaker centers of spiritual life and 
the planting of new centers. But when we speak of "the whole 
District" we find it impossible to confine our thought to the Church 
women. Only when the Church commissions her entire member- 
ship — men and women together — to take the world for Christ, can we 
hope to see fulfilled our vision for the Wake District. 

Emilie R. Holmes, Chairman.

CONVOCATION OF CHARLOTTE 



Reports of District Chairmen 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

The District of Forsyth-Rowan has moved forward steadily in the 
Church's program during the past year. Two achievements which 
should be of especial satisfaction are the Valle Crucis scholarship, 
which has been sustained over and above the other Diocesan calls 
responded to, and the fact that one-fourth of the U. T. Offering of 
the Diocese presented at General Convention in Washington was 
contributed by Forsyth-Rowan women. Substantial interest in all 
causes of the Church has been evidenced and the work of the future 
has received much support. 

It is safe to predict that this District will live up to its past and 
present records for faithfulness in all requests for the advancement 
of the cause of Christ. 

Jane Penick Guilford, Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

The spring meeting of the District of Guilford in St. Mary's 
Church, High Point, was a very fine advance program on Africa, 
when both Bishop Campbell, of Liberia, and the Rev. E. L. Haines 
spoke from a personal knowledge of the field. An inspiring meeting 
on some of the outstanding objectives of both the Church and of the 
Auxiliary, was held in November in Burlington, with the Holy Com- 
forter branch, which may well be called a model Auxiliary. The 
year has been one of real progress in most of the branches of this 
District, as shown by the increased amount given by the greater fre- 
quency of meeting, by organization in which more women take part, 
and by a general responsiveness and interest. 

Anna Clark Gordon, Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

Two District meetings held in 1928, one at Charlotte at the Holy 
Comforter in the spring, with Rev. Mr. Haines as speaker ; one at 
Mecklenburg County, St. Marks, in the fall, Bishop Finley speaker. 
Both meetings splendid and well attended. 

There has been excellent work and a ready response to all appeals 
shown by the splendid reports in all fields of service. 

Much inspiration and interest have been aroused by securing dis- 
tinguished speakers throughout the year. 

Unusual interest manifested in the educational work; many con- 
ferences held. 



3 2 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Generous contributions in clothes and money for the box work. 

Since the adoption of the children at the Thompson Home by the 
various branches, their needs are substantially met. Twenty-five to 
thirty ladies from the Charlotte churches meet every Thursday for 
sewing and mending. 

A decided increase shown in the observance of intercessory days. 

Our United Thank Offering is steadily gaining. 

Each Branch was represented at the General Convention. 

Our prayer-partner, Miss Coffin, is remembered at stated times by 
prayers and gifts. 

Mrs. J. C. Pitrnell, Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

Five counties comprise the District of Richmond : Montgomery, 
Moore, Anson, Scotland, and Richmond. 

In this territory there are only four (4) branches of the Auxiliary 
with an approximate membership of 75. 

Amount of money contributed for all purposes at home and abroad, 
$438.49. United Thank Offering, $266.47, making a total of $704.96, 
an average of almost $10.00 per member. 

Number of women attending summer conference at Kanuga Lake, 
two. 

Number of girls at Camp Penick, Lake Lure, one. 

Intercessory days have been observed and corporate communions 
reported. 

All departments have been faithful in the discharge of their duties, 
the Department of Education being especially interested and active. 
Well attended District Meetings were held at Ansonville in May, and 
at Southern Pines in November. 

. When the Districts were formed, the wisdom of holding two meet- 
ings a year was considered doubtful. It has now become the con- 
sensus of opinion that the Districts hold the keys to the situation, 
and two meetings are well worth while. 

An enthusiastic branch composed of the younger women of Cal- 
vary Church, Wadesboro, has been organized and named in memory 
of Mary Clifford Bennett McArver, who entered life eternal May, 
1928. 

Although Southern Pines has no regularly organized Woman's 
Auxiliary, she still shows an interest in the work, by her generous 
contribution to the spring United Thank Offering. 

All Saints Church, Hamlet, having been without a Rector for the 
past year, has become somewhat discouraged and demoralized, but 
now that Rev. Howard Hartzell has been placed in charge of the 
Mission for part of his time, plans are being made for the reorganiza- 
tion of their branch of the Auxiliary. It is hoped that both places 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 

will be able soon to gatber tbeir forces together and assume tbeir 
share of tbe responsibilities devolving upon tbe women of the Church. 

The District has also suffered the loss of its Prayer-Partner, Miss 
Maryland B. Nichols, who laid down her life for others in far away 
Liberia. This is felt as a personal loss. 

The entire District is especially interested in Wilma Biggs, the 
young girl from Rockingham, who is still in training for Mission 
work, and has chosen Cuba as her field of service. 

According to the accepted system of rotation, the present chair- 
man's term of office will expire in the fall. She will then be in a 
position to appreciate the conflicting emotions of the Methodist min- 
isters when their four years of service are completed, and they must 
pass on. 

Easdale Shaw, Chairman.

COMMITTEE REPORTS 



REPORT OF RECRUITING SECRETARY 

Letters have been mailed to all District Recruiting Secretaries, or 
District Chairmen, asking for a report for the past year. To some 
letters have been mailed twice and three times, yet only four have 
given reports. 

Three delegates were sent to Summer Conferences, one from For- 
syth-Rowan, two from the District of Wake. Others of course at- 
tended. You sent two from St. Mary's. 

One young man from St. George's. Woodleaf, will study for the 
ministry, Fitzhugh Watson. 

It should be our privilege to pray daily for Missionaries, Foreign 
and Domestic, our young men studying for the ministry, our young 
women in training for the Mission Field.

REPORT OF TREASURE AND TRINKET FUND 

Madam President and Members of the Woman's Auxiliary: 

Since the last Annual Meeting packages of gold and silver have 
been received as follows : 
Mrs. Marriott, Battleboro. 
Miss Rebe Shields, Scotland Neck. 
Woman's Auxiliary, Mayodan. 
Mrs. Frank A. Cole. Weldon. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 35 

Mrs. Mary Long Green, Weldon. 

Mrs. P. H. Thomas, Henderson. 

Silver I had permission to sell and silver which I did not have 
permission to sell was accidentally mixed by Mr. Mahler, so no silver 
has been sold except a small amount which was sent for that pur- 
pose and which was not mixed with any other. This was sold for 
75 cents. 

Money has been received as follows : 

Woman's Auxiliary, Mayodan $ 1.00 

Silver sold (as explained) .75 

Amount previously reported 7.25 

Interest 1.33 

Total amount on hand $10.33 

At the last meeting I reported 113 dwt. of gold, value $52.10. This 
was in one piece of 8-karat gold. H. Mahler's Sons has melted and 
added to it all other pieces we had, and partially refined it, so we 
now have 101 dwt. of 17 karat gold, value $65.11. The silver we 
have has not been melted. 

It may be of interest to newly admitted members to know that 
since this fund was begun in 1918 we have had four services com- 
pleted. Respectfully submitted, 

Laura June Alston. 

April 8, 1929. 

REPORT INTER-RACIAL COMMMITTEE 

The Inter-racial Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary of the 
Diocese of North Carolina has been interested in fostering mutual 
helpfulness and good feeling between the races. The members have 
served on school and day nursery boards and Inter-racial Committees, 
and have been ready at all times to be of service. 

The outstanding work of the committee has been the finding and 
financing a student, Rosa Williams, of Fayetteville, at the Bishop 
Tuttle School for Christian Social Workers at Raleigh. The pres- 
ence at the Convention of this girl and the other girls of the school, 
and the presentation of the work, purpose and ideals of the school 
was one of the outstanding features of the Convention. 

We hope to continue this scholarship for the coming year and thus 
fit this young woman for constructive Christian social work for and 
with her people, and we shall continue to cooperate with the earnest 
colored women of our Church and community in the things that are 
helpful and worth while. 

Mes. T. W. Bickett, Chairman. 



3 6 FORTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY OF THE COLORED 
CONVOCATION 

Madam President and Members of the Auxiliary : 

For the past three years we have held our annual meetings at St. 
Augustine's during the time of the Conference. The result of this 
plan is a larger attendance at our annual meetings, a greater interest 
in the local branches, and a fuller program in general. 

Several local branches are inactive on account of the absence of a 
minister. It is impossible for the president or educational secretary 
to reach these branches on account of expense entailed. The officers 
meet at the time of the Convocation in August, outlining plans for 
the coming year. 

The past year has been successful. We reached our goal for the 
corporate gift and increased our U. T. O. by one hundred dollars. 
We also received and completed an allotment from the supply de- 
partment from headquarters. 

I regret deeply my inability to attend your annual meeting. 

I would speak of the splendid meeting held in Charlotte last fall 
and of the cooperation that is being given by the members of the 
Inter-racial Committee tbere. 

Our work is taking on new life. Bequests are being met with 
quicker response, and plans are being worked out with greater zeal 
than heretofore. 

Mrs. M. M. Weston, President. 

REPORT OF CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

I am going to use my time today in proposing plans for the future, 
and asking your cooperation in reestablishing the Church Periodical 
Club in the Diocese. 

The chief work of the C. P. C. in the past has been the forward- 
ing to others of magazines after they have been read by the sub- 
scribers. This has been practically discontinued on account of the 
high postal rates. Relief along this line has come with the new rate 
on forwarded magazines. 

In commenting on this new rate the C. P. C. magazine for the fall 
said : "All thanks to those who at some personal sacrifice have con- 
tinued to mail their magazines through these past years." 

As conditions vary in each parish, it is impossible to lay down 
any hard and fast rules for each C. P. C. worker. Being an inde- 
pendent organization itself, each branch is at liberty to conduct its 
work as it seems best in its own locality. For instance the work of 
some branches may consist solely of the forwarding of magazines by 
individuals, while others may prefer to contribute money for sub- 
scriptions. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 37 

Again in some localities the members of the C. P. C. may be able 
to fill pressing local needs with their magazines. 

The C. P. C. fund is a most important phase of the C. P. C. work, 
whereby books and magazines are supplied to schools and universi- 
ties in the mission field. 

Along whatever lines each club is run, it is recommended that co- 
operation be had with the other organizations of the Church. 

I hereby ask the Branch President of every Auxiliary to appoint 
promptly a C. P. O. Secretary. 

I wish now to urge the District Chairmen to take this matter up 
at their District meetings. Ere long we may have an active C. P. C. 
organization throughout all parts of the Diocese. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Maby M. Hoke, G. P. C. Director.

PRAYERS FOR USE IN AUXILIARY MEETINGS 

Auxiliary Prayer 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thank- 
ful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for 
His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advance- 
ment of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we 
pray Thee, with such love and faith that we may be willing to 
go unto the uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. 
This, and all things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

For Noontide, Daily 

Lord of the Harvest, send forth men full of faith and of the 
Holy Ghost as laborers into Thy harvest; through Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved; through Thy merits and mercies, 
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever 
One God, world without end. Amen. 

Daily Prayer 

O God, for as much as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee, mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things 
direct and rule our hearts, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Lord, pardon what we have been; sanctify what we are; order 
what we shall be; that Thine may be the glory and ours the 
eternal salvation, through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Episcopal Home 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send 
Thy blessings upon the Thompson Episcopal Home, instituted in 
Thy name. Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers 
and matrons of this home, that they may faithfully discharge 
the duties committed to their charge. Let the boys and girls 
grow in grace and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



bodies, enlighten their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify 
their wills. Bless all who have contributed to this institution, 
and raise up, we pray Thee, a never-failing succession of bene- 
factors whose names may be perpetuated through all generations 
as a blessed memory, and their good deeds be accepted; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive; look with 
favor, we beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, 
especially in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for 
the poor, the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their 
burdens with our ready gifts and service: through Jesus Christ, 
our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose 
flocks are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts 
the hope of a better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep 
in scattered places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; 
Who art with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, 
world without end. Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth 
more laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special 
grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the Field, 
and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast 
given to them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank 
Offering of prayer and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to 
the coming of Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Use Before and At the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can en- 
able us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the 
dignity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as 
our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; 
to those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the 
discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



6 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 

workers in Thy service: bless we pray Thee Thy servant, , 

and prosper her in the work to which Thou hast called her. 
Grant her sufficient wisdom for every task, Thy gracious help in 
time of trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and the 
power to accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name and 
for Thy glory; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." 
Amen. 

Thanksgivings 

We give Thee humble thanks, O Heavenly Father, that Thou 
hast vouchsafed to call us to the knowledge of Thy grace and 
faith in Thee; increase this knowledge and confirm this faith in 
us evermore. Grant that we may daily be renewed by Thy Holy 
Spirit, so that all sinful affections may die in us, and that all 
things belonging to the Spirit may live and grow in us; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee humble 
thanks for all the great things Thou hast done and are doing for 
the children of men; for the opening of heathen lands to the 
light of Thy truth; for making paths into the deep waters and 
highways in the desert; for knitting nation to nation in the bond 
of fellowship, and for the planting of Thy Church in all the 
earth. O merciful Father, in whom the whole family is named, 
fill full our hearts with grateful love for this Thy goodness, 
granting grace henceforth to serve Thee better and more per- 
fectly to know Thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

offered the following report : 

REPORT OF COURTESY COMMITTEE 

There is no committee work half so pleasant as that of the 
Courtesy Committee, and I consider this Committee is com- 
posed of every delegate to this Convention. 

If we could talk with as much charm and grace as we have 
been entertained with, we could in a slight measure express our 
gratitude and appreciation for the hospitality, genuine wel- 
come, kindness and consideration shown us. Our thanks began 
when you invited us last spring and we have been thanking 
you all through the year, as we did our work, thinking of all 
the beautiful plans you were making and the real work your 
committees were doing to make our meeting what it has been — 
a joy and an inspiration to us all ! 



20 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

The efficiency and graciousness with which the Hospitality 
Committee performed their duties, the delicious lunches, the 
lovely new Church and Parish House, all have combined to 
make our stay most pleasant. From the time we were met by 
your Rector's wife and her committee until saying good-bye to 
the last chauffeur, we have had every attention possible. 

Those of us who were entertained in such comfort and ele- 
gance at Winston-Salem's famous Hotel under the auspices of 
our beloved Southern hero, wish also to thank our hosts and 
hostesses for providing so generously for our pleasure and 
comfort. 

"Jesus Christ has attended this Convention." Jesus came and 
said "Peace." We left our cares and sorrows to come to you, 
and as Studdart Kennedy has said, "Peace is not the drying of 
all tears, nor the ceasing of all trials, but being lifted up to the 
Presence of God," and surely the spiritual uplift we have re- 
ceived here in your midst has assured us of His presence always. 
We thank Mr. Gribben for all the wonderful things that he 
has done, even the details that we could not know of, but the 
effects of which we have felt. We thank the organist and each 
member of the choir to the littlest boy and girl. 

We thank our Bishops for their beginning each day for us, 
and last, but not least, we thank our President for securing us 
such wonderful speakers and helpful program in every detail. 

Mrs. H. G. Cooper, Chairman. 

Mrs. Kate W. Arrington. 

Mrs. John L. Jackson. 

Mrs. G. R. Doby. 

Mrs. E. jST. Baker. 

Mrs. H. S. Harrison. 

A rising vote of thanks was extended the Secretary for faith- 
ful performance of duty. 

All business having been transacted, Bishop Penick delivered 
the closing message. This was followed by the rededication by 
all the women of the Church. 

Faithfully submitted, 

Ltal C. Boice, Secretary. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 21 

ADDRESS OF PRESIDENT 

Dear friends: 

Again I bring to you my greetings and my love. 

My association with you during the past three years, has 
been a privilege and a joy, and I feel that no where can be 
found a finer body of women than these before me today. 

May this Annual Meeting be one of great uplift and inspira- 
tion, and, while we meet for conference and legislation, we also 
meet for renewed consecration and instruction. 

At this meeting there will be few statistical reports. In each 
Department, these will be printed in full in the Year Book, and 
every woman should secure a copy. 

The precious moments while here will be consumed in getting 
the vision for future work, rather than in dwelling on past 
achievements. 

That we may have a broader outlook of the work of the Wom- 
an's Auxiliary, inspirational addresses will be brought us in 
these two days, from foremost leaders in the Church. These men 
and women, have paused in their daily round to bring us mes- 
sages from Alaska, China, Africa, England and America. 

The year 1929 has been a year of progress. The material 
obligations have all been met. In the heart of each individual, 
alone, is a record of the spiritual growth. 

Steadily grows the development of Christian Education, 
Social Service, and the Supply Department. North Carolina 
again leads in the Fourth Province in its United Thank Offer- 
ing. The real true conception of this blessed work of praise 
and thanksgiving is that it is a little Society of two, The Master, 
and you! 

A new President will be chosen today. May we be constrained 
to elect a woman who will be unsparing of her time and talents, 
not counting the cost, and who will welcome constructive criti- 
cism. 

A Woman Representative on the Diocesan Council, likewise 
will be chosen today. Elect a woman who will feel it a great 
privilege to have a part in shaping the affairs of the Diocese, 
and who will be at her post in season and out. Choose your 
officers prayerfully and with care. The time is short, and I 
recommend that it should not be wasted in merely complimen- 
tary nominations. 



22 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

I cannot commend too highly the untiring efforts of the 
Diocesan Officers and the District Chairmen. Of immense im- 
portance are the District meetings, where Parish problems can 
be discussed and settled in an intimate way, and where differ- 
ences as well as agreements can be frankly expressed. 

Let us stress the Educational features of our work. Apparent 
indifference may come from lack of information. Mr. Darwin 
says : "Nature never makes a leap." While at times we may 
be impatient at our slow advancement, yet we must realize that, 
like nature, our great Woman's Auxiliary is conservative and 
progresses slowly and painstakingly. 

The work of Social Service is near our hearts in that it affects 
the family life. While I do not favor the indiscriminate injec- 
tion of politics into our religion, yet I do feel that the vital 
questions of Prohibition and Divorce can be on the minds and 
hearts of the Women of this Auxiliary. I heard Bishop Guerry 
of South Carolina once say: The Christian marriage cannot be 
dissolved. A Justice of the Peace should perform the ceremony, 
if the marriage is gone into lightly. 

Rural work should be stressed. Let our emphasis be on mat- 
ters outside of our own Parish. We note the thoroughness which 
characterized the recent political campaigns. Groups were or- 
ganized to go into the remote corners to bring women to the 
polls. This gives me an idea that in the Church, we too may 
organize to go to the country as well as the towns, and bring 
the isolated women to a realization that each soul is needed. 
There are too many absentees in the Church today. There can 
be no collective responsibility for carrying out the affairs of the 
Church, without first securing and maintaining an individual 
responsibility. 

Christ hath no hands but my hands, 

to work for Him today; 
Christ hath no feet but my feet, 

to lead men in His way, 
Christ hath no voice but my voice, 

to tell men how He died; 
Christ hath no strength but my strength 

to bring men to His side. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 23 

There is no place for a laggard in the army of Christ. 

"Here am I" is the spirit that should dominate every Chris- 
tian worker. No woman is a thorough convert to the work of 
our great Society until she is enlisting others in its service. 

"Upon thy bended knees thank God for work, 
Work — once man's penance, now his high reward ! 
For work to do and strength to do the work, 
We thank Thee, Lord !" 

Especially would I urge a clarity of aim and a depth of pur- 
pose in our relationships with the young people. I appeal to the 
youth of today to sign up for work in the Church while they 
have their vigor and strength, and are alert and in possession 
of all their faculties. 

We have at present such a call as has come to no other 
generation. The Spirit has given us a call to tolerance of the 
faiths of others. 

Carefully must we guard our principles, but equally must we 
take care that what we think are fundamental principles, are 
not merely cherished customs. 

We who desire to keep faithful to our religious tradition, must 
have enough intellectual curiosity to find out what that tradi- 
tion is. 

With bowed heads and saddened hearts we record the loss of 
many of our best loved and most valued Bishops. Their in- 
fluence will be long felt. 

May I urge upon you the fact that the missionary work of 
the Church takes no vacation, and that the work is advanced 
solely by our prayers and our offerings. 

While this is my last year as President of the Auxiliary, 
this is in no sense my valedictory, for there is no age limit to 
my love and enthusiasm for the Woman's Auxiliary. 

Faithfully, 

Alice Winston Spruill. 

Rocky Mount, 1ST. C, April 30, 1930.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 25 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL, SERVICE 

The report for the Social Service Department for 1929 is again 
only a partial report, no reports having come from one entire district 
and no district having been able to report for every one of its 
branches. Five district secretaries are untiring in their efforts to 
get every branch to report, and they are also prompt in sending out 
information to the branches. When all district secretaries are func- 
tioning in this way, the ideal which we long for will have been 
attained, however, there is encouragement in the fact that with 
fewer branches reporting this year than last we show a small gain 
in the amount expended for Social Service work, but still more im- 
portant than the monetary gain is the broadening scope of the work 
being carried on. There is increased interest in ministering to 
prisoners and in the condition of jails and prisons in which they 
are confined. Bad prison conditions all over the country are a dis- 
credit to the nation and Dean Lathrop has done a great deal to 
focus a strong light of public disapproval upon a condition which 
Christian people should demand be corrected. 

There has been widespread want in our State from business de- 
pression and unemployment and much relief work has been done by 
the branches, also splendid assistance rendered those needing hospital 
treatment and operations. 

This Diocese is clothing six more children at the Thompson 
Orphanage and Training Institution than last year, but who is not 
saddened that there has to be retrenchment at the Orphanage because 
of curtailment of contributions from many sources. Ours is rated 
one of the best child caring institutions in the South, and as a 
Diocese we should show our appreciation for the unselfish service 
making it one of the best, by increasing our gifts whenever possible. 
Faithfully yours, 

Mrs. G. B. Lewis, Secretary. 

REPORT OF DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY 
FOR 1929 

Dear Members of the Auxiliary: 

The time has come when we all feel the branches throughout our 
Diocese are showing real and increasing interest in organized study. 

During 1929 thirty branches held study classes on "The New 
Africa," besides classes on "The General Church Program," "Build- 
ing the City of God," and "Christ in the Common Ways of Life." 

Seven others report study on various other subjects, including 
Church periodicals. 

Ten reported no organized study. Most of these are small and 
isolated groups. 



26 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Our aim is an active educational secretary in every branch ; a 
yearly program printed or typewritten ; at least one study class 
during the year ; all educational secretaries to study during the 
summer and attend one of the "Educational Institutes" in November 
to fit themselves for leadership. 

A number of the branches have already reached this goal. 

For very small branches regular study of ''The Spirit of Missions" 
has proved helpful. 

Two "Educational Institutes" were held in November in Oxford 
and High Point. 

While these meetings were well attended and very helpful, many 
of the educational secretaries did not attend. 

Twenty-two members attended summer conferences. 

The growth of the work of the Auxiliary depends upon the 
knowledge of its members. 

Let us pray and study together and "Grow in grace and in the 
knowledge of Jesus Christ," and His work. 

Faithfully, 

Mrs. Warren W. Way, 

Secretary. 

REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

Amount received from Mrs. W. D. Burwell, 

Spring Offering $3,300.00 

Amount received from Fall Offering 3,154.50 

Interest to December 31, 1929 97.72 



$6,552.22 

As we glance over these figures, do we feel as though we had 
done our best? Should we let anything interfere with our expressions 
of gratitude? Is every woman in the Church "giving thanks always 
for all things unto God, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ?" I 
want you to look for a moment at the following figures, and compare 
them with the offering for 1929 above. 

1926 $6,804.98 

1927 6,786,68 

1928 7,127.48 

Do you not think we can do something about it? In our Diocese 
there must be fully four thousand women communicants. If each 
one of these women were to take a Blue Box, and give an offering 
as an expression of her thankfulness for the many blessings which 
life has brought, our Triennial would reach a figure far beyond 
anything we have ever attained. It is not alone a more generous 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



offering from those already interested for which we strive. Our aim 
is more women who know of the offering; more women giving 
of their money and their prayers ; more women loving it for what 
it can do for the work of Christ, and for what it brings to them 
of blessing through ever widening opportunities of service. We want 
every woman in the Diocese joining in a great Thank Offering of 
prayer and service and gifts. 

Let us hope for this great end. Let us pray for it ; let us plan 
for it ; let us accomplish it. 

Faithfully, 

Millicent P. Lawrence, Treasurer.

30 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

REPORT OF AUDITOR 

From January 1, 1929, to January 1, 1930 

To the President and Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary 
to the Presiding Bishop and Council, Diocese of North Carolina: 
Pursuant to the request of your Treasurer, I have audited the 
records of receipts and disbursements for the period beginning 
January 1, 1929, and ending January 1, 1930. During this period 
the account was kept by Miss Nan G. Clark, Tarboro, North Caro- 
lina. I have carefully gone over all records of receipts and all 
vouchers showing disbursements and find them in balance. The 
balance of $280.88 is deposited in the Edgecombe National Bank, 
Tarboro, North Carolina. 

K. D. Morgan, Auditor.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 31 



CONVOCATION OF RALEIGH 



Reports of District Chairmen 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

Since the last Annual Meeting the District of Edgecombe has held 
two well attended and enthusiastic meetings — Grace Church, Law- 
rence, and St. John's, Battleboro. The latter meeting in October, 
consisted almost entirely of a Church Army program. 

There are sixteen active Branches. All report having met their 
pledges, fourteen having observed Intercessory Days, and twelve con- 
ducted educational classes. 

The District financed the Church Army at Erwin for two months. 
The Branches of Calvary Church, Tarboro, assumed the responsi- 
bility alone for one month. This form of evangelism has fast grown 
in favor with our women, and we pray the time is not far distant 
when it may function throughout the Diocese. 

The Branch of St. Timothy's, Wilson, is using a unique system 
called, the "Calendar Plan." It has proven, novel, interesting, and 
satisfactory. 

The Branches at Scotland Neck, consisting of about 40 women, 
were given talent money of fifty cents each, in six weeks they re- 
turned five hundred dollars. 

I simply mention these two branches, as their work has been a 
little unusual, hoping their enthusiasm may be "passed on." 

All the branches have done good work, assuming their Christian 
responsibility in Evangelism, Education, Social Service, and last but 
by no means least, prayer. 

As chairman of this District it is my everlasting hope and desire to 
continue in my humble way the enthusiasm and spirituality of my 
predecessor Miss Rena Clark, in extending the kingdom of Christ on 
earth. 

Rosa W. Buixtjck, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The spring meeting of the District of Granville held in St. Albans 
Littleton on May 2nd was a fine Program on Evangelism, when Mr. 
S. S. Nash of Tarboro, N. C, spoke from personal knowledge of his 
own work. 

The fall meeting was held in the Church of the Good Shepherd 
at Ridgway with an inspiring program, Rev. E. L. Haines giving a 
complete analysis of what is meant by the Forward Movement, Mr. 



32 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Duncan Thomas and Capt. William Smith of Erwin gave us a 
demonstration of the work done by the Church Army in that 
locality. This District has moved forward steadily in the Church's 
program during the past year. It is safe to predict that it will live 
up to its past and present records for faithfulness in all requests 
for the advancement of the cause of Christ. 

Miss Wilma Biggs, who is now at N. C. C. W. studying to become 
a missionary is our new prayer partner. 

Mrs. Maurice S. Clifton, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The District of Orange in its nine branches represents about 
225 women. Our largest branch with a membership of 100 sets a 
wonderful example, meeting its obligations and answering the extra 
calls most generously. Of the work of the small groups, I speak 
with equal enthusiasm, however. The pledges are met and there is 
always something over the top. 

The Thank Offering was somewhat smaller than that of last year. 
Intercessory days were observed in a number of places. The Supply 
Department had a good response in money, sewing and excellent 
boxes. Three orphans were clothed. Study programs were reported 
from every group with special Lenten meetings and mission study 
from a number. 

The Social Service work was varied and appealing. Contributions 
to the Church Building Fund at Sanford were reported. At our 
District meeting at Roxboro we heard the Church Army man and 
Mr. Thomas tell of their splendid work. It was a pleasure to con- 
tribute to so worthy a cause. Roxboro's lovely little stone church 
was well filled at that meeting. The women there are few in number 
but earnest workers and the church membership is showing steady 
growth under Mr. Hurst who goes from his charge in West Durham 
to minister to them. St. Luke's Hospital has had a good response 
from a few branches. 

Not less interesting and diversified is the work at home. I have 
space to mention only the teas given Sunday afternoon at the 
Parish House of the Chapel of the Cross for the students at the 
University. These have proven a real factor in the life of the parish. 
A generous contribution for this work has been made by the women 
of East Carolina and also by women in our own District. 

Mrs. Collier Cobb, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF WAKE 

During the past year most of the nine branches of the Wake 
District maintained each its general standard of contributions to 
the Diocesan Budget, while one of the smaller branches (St. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 

Saviour's) took a higher place than it had yet held in the Ascending 
Scale of pledges. The outstanding achievement of the year was the 
launching of Church Army work in the missionary field of Erwin, 
the District making itself responsible for the first three experimental 
months. 

There seems to me jto be a slow but steady gain in appreciation 
of the educational phase of our work. Christ Church Service League 
deserves the banner for attendance at the Educational Institute held 
in Oxford in November, and both this branch and the Lucy Pittenger 
and St. Mary's have made a worth while study of the Jerusalem 
Conference. The District was not, however, adequately represented 
at Kanuga. 

The development of leaders comes on, though slowly. St. Anne's 
has produced our new District Chairman and our Prayer Partner 
Correspondent, and Christ Church our new Secretary. Smithfield 
and Erwin have had occasion to busy themselves even more than 
usual in meeting the needs of the poor in their communities. Selma, 
too, seems to be feeling "the thrill of life along her keel," while 
Wake Forest is enthusiastically claiming us for the spring meeting. 

While we have had good meetings, I would point the branches, 
both small and large, to a higher goal in the matter of attendance, 
for it is my firm conviction that the enthusiasm which these meetings 
are calculated to arouse is more potent than anything else to awaken 
the rank and file of our members to a sense of their responsibility 
for carrying on the great work of the Auxiliary.

Reports of District Chairmen 



DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

The District of Forsyth-Rowan has a small membership — eight of 
the fourteen branches being only from three to five members each — 
but they have been keenly alive to every Auxiliary subject, and are 
now closing a most successful year. 

Christian Social Service has been the keynote of this District, 
and this small group of women have for several years maintained 
a scholarship at Valle Crucis. We hope to make this work perma- 
nent. One branch in the District has contributed largely to a fund 
gotten up each year by Archdeacon Hardin, to bring Christmas 
Cheer to children who would otherwise have no pleasure at this 
season. 

Seven children at Thompson Orphanage are clothed and visited by 
branches in this District. 

Religious Education was also stressed in this District, with study 
classes and speakers. One branch has had outstanding speakers once 
a month. 

Two well attended, enthusiastic District Meetings were held, one 
in Cleveland and one in Winston-Salem. Much inspiration is gained 
from these meetings. 

We are glad to report one new branch organized since the last 
Convention : The MAY BRAWLEY BRANCH— St. Luke's, Salisbury. 

We are entering the New Year prayerfully and with a great joy in 
service, so expect a great blessing. 

Mrs. John L. Gilmer, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

The work of the Auxiliary in the District of Guilford is interesting 
in its variety, as it includes among the eleven branches which com- 
pose the District, many types and forms of organization. There 
is one distinctively rural branch which makes quilts and plants 
potatoes to raise its funds, does much sewing for the Supply De- 
partment, and gives generously in Social Service work throughoi;t 
Rockingham County ; there are two active branches in industrial 
centers ; there is a circTe among the deaf at Holy Comforter, Bur- 
lington, which branch for the last two years, has had a model method 
of budgeting and program arrangement ; one branch is composed 
of only two members ; in contrast, Holy Trinity, Greensboro, has a 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 35 

regularly organized Church Service League; and St. Mary's, High 
Point, is successfully trying a simplified form of the Service League 
for a small branch. St. Andrew's, Greensboro, and Epiphany, Leaks- 
ville, represent the usual type of Auxiliary work, faithfully done. 
I regret to report that St. John's, Madison, is temporarily disbanded. 

Two well attended District Meetings were held last year — one in 
the spring at St. Thomas's, Reidsville with "Lay Evangelism" as the 
theme, and the other in the fall at St. Luke's, Spray, when the 
program centered around the thought of "Witnessing For Christ." 
Also, one of the Diocesan Educational Institutes was held in High 
Point in November and was an inspiration to the District. Many 
of the branches followed the general course of departmental work 
which has been included in the reports of the Diocesan Secretaries. 
The response to special calls has been generous. 

The item of outstanding interest was the offering of life for full 
time missionary service by Miss May Hairston. Miss Hairston is a 
communicant of St. Luke's, Spray, and during the past winter, has 
taught in the Helen Dunlap Memorial School, in the Ozark Moun- 
tains, Arkansas. 

Anna Clark Gordon, Temporary Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

Both spring and fall meetings of the District of Mecklenburg, were 
largely attended and much interest shown. 

The spring meeting was held at St. Martin's church, Charlotte. 
Archdeacon Kent, spoke on "Alaska's Needs," and Mrs. Lyman Cot- 
ton in a beautiful way, told of the hospital at Tokyo, Japan. 

The fall meeting was held at the Chapel of Hope, Mission, North 
Charlotte, with Miss Sallie Dean of Richmond, Virginia, who spoke 
on "Our Individual Responsibility as Women of the Auxiliary," which 
was an inspiration to all who heard her. 

A pageant entitled, "The Presentation of the National Council to 
the Women's Auxiliary," was presented by the ladies from the 
different branches. This was interesting and instructive. 

All secretaries are trying to carry on their work conscientiously, 
faithfully and prayerfully. 

Mrs. James Purnell, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

If the District of Richmond should make up in interest and en- 
thusiasm what it lacks in numbers, it is because the four small 
branches of, approximately, seventy-five members, are composed of 
women who are keenly alive and faithful in the discharge of their 
duties. Under the leadership of their splendid Secretaries every 
department has gone forward, especial emphasis at all times being 



36 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

placed on Religious Education as the foundation upon which depends 
the success of all other departments of church work. Obligations 
devolving upon all branches of the Auxiliary have been met, as will 
appear in detail elsewhere, including the responsibility of expense 
for the church army for the month of March. The Supply Depart- 
ment having been located in our midst for the past year, directed by 
Mrs. Howard Hartzell, Diocesan Supply Secretary, has become the 
center of interest and activity. The amount of work done and 
good accomplished by this department has been both a revelation and 
inspiration. Two fine District meetings have been held during the 
year. In the Spring, at the church of The Messiah, Rockingham, at 
which Mrs. W. W. Way, Diocesan Educational Secretary, was present 
and stressed the importance of summer reading and conferences. At 
the Fall meeting in the beautiful new Parish House of Calvary 
Church, Wadesboro, Rev. E. L. Haines, Diocesan Executive Secretary, 
very forcibly presented the Forward Movement. The meeting on 
May 9, will be in Hamlet, the branch of All Saints Church, having 
been recently revived and warmly welcomed back into the fold. 
Wadesboro is the only place in the District that can boast of two 
branches, and great pride is taken in the Mary Clifford Branch, 
composed of the younger women of Calvary Church, of which the 
present District Chairman, Mrs. Herman Hardison, is President. 

It will be recalled that the young girl, Wilmer Biggs, who will soon 
leave for missionary work in Cuba, is from the District of Rich- 
mond, Church of The Messiah, Rockingham.

COMMITTEE REPORTS 



RECRUITING SECRETARY 

Questionnaires have been sent to all District Recruiting Secretaries 
and to the Chairmen of Districts in which there is no Recruiting 
Secretary. All have sent reports. 

Nineteen delegates were sent to Su mm er Conference by the Dis- 
tricts, while twelve attended at their own expense. Two girls were 
sent from St. Mary's to Camp Penick, half of their expenses was 
defrayed by the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese. They were 
Blanche Baker Hanff and Lelia Purvis. 

Three young men are now studying for the ministry from Char- 
lotte: Albert C. Sanderson from Holy Comforter, David Yates from 
St. Peter's and Andrew Milstead from St. Martin's, Ernest Winborne 
and Frank Pully from Tarboro. 

One recruit from the Mission Field has entered the Helen Dunlap 
Memorial School, Arkansas, for training, Miss Mary Hairston, a 
communicant and Church School teacher of St. Luke's, Spray. Miss 
Wilmer Biggs, of Rockingham, has completed training at the Dea- 
coness School, Philadelphia, and is studying Spanish at Greensboro, 
in order to be prepared for her work as Missionary in Cuba, where 
she goes in August. 

As we pray daily for our Missionaries, Foreign and Domestic, 
our young men studying for the ministry, our young women in 
training for the Mission Field, let us remember the need of twenty 
new workers in China — ten Americans, ten Chinese — and offer the 
prayer issued from the Church Missions House. 

As summer approaches let us remember our opportunities for in- 
spiring the Missionary spirit in our parishes by attending Summer 
Conferences at Kanuga Lake, June 14-July 25, and at Sewanee, and 
urging others to go. 

Maby Hilliaed Hinton, Chairman. 

For a complete list of Missionaries from the Diocese of North 
Carolina see page 7. 

PUBLICITY DEPARTMENT 

It is impossible to give an accurate report as to the number of 
subscriptions now being received in the Diocese. Interest has been 
increased in the subscriptions through the splendid effort of the 
educational secretaries, and I wish to thank all those who have 
worked so faithfully trying to secure subscriptions. The Auxiliary 
endorses the following church papers and periodicals. 



38 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Carolina Churchman, Scotland Neck, N. C $1.00 per year 

Spirit of Missions, 281 Fourth Ave., New York.. ..$1.00 per year 

The Witness, 6140 Cottage Grove Ave., Chicago $2.00 per year 

The Living Church, Milwaukee, Wis $4.00 per year 

New York Churchman, 2 W. 47th St., New York....$4.00 per year 

With the above information, allow me to offer the beautiful Collect 
which is so appropriate for this department : 

"Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful 
people ; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of 
good works, may by thee be plenteously rewarded ; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." 

Only by being well informed with our Church, at home and abroad 
can we be stirred to do great things in His name. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Geo. N. Cooke, Chairman. 
Monroe, N. C. 

TREASURE AND TRINKET FUND 

Since the last Annual Meeting I have received two packages, one 
from Mrs. P. H. Thomas, Henderson, N. C, and one from the "West 
Durham" branch of the Woman's Auxiliary, also one wedding ring. 

Gifts of money to pay for making of the service for the Church 
for the Deaf have been received as follows : 

Mrs. Benehan Cameron, Raleigh $15.00 

Miss Norah L. King, Raleigh 5.00 

Calvery Branch, W. A., Tarboro 5.00 

St. Catherine's, Tarboro 2.50 

St. Philip's, Durham 10.00 

Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount 2.50 

Mrs. Frank Wood, Hillsboro 10.00 

Mrs. A. B. Hunter, Raleigh 10.00 

St. Paul's Church Service League, Winston-Salem.... 11.00 
Lucy Pittenger Branch, W. A., Good Shepherd, 

Raleigh 4.00 

Amount on hand at the beginning of this year in 

Commercial National Bank, and interest 10.58 

Total $85.58 

The service, consisting of a silver chalice ornamented with gold, 
and a gold paten, was made by H. Mahler's Sons, Raleigh, N. C, at 
a cost of $82.00, leaving us a balance of $3.58. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 39 

In this paten are incorporated the most precious gifts that were 
presented since the beginning of this work. It contains all the gold 
except that used in ornamenting the chalice. 

In this chalice and in all the other services there were many 
pieces of old hand-made treasured relics and many keepsakes, and 
those who gave the things that were dear to them may now feel 
assured that they are being used in honor of our Lord as He comes 
to us in the Blessed Sacrament of His Most Precious Body and 
Blood. 

One service is being used in the convocation of Charlotte, one in 
the convocation of Raleigh, one in the Church at Rockingham (the 
making of this was paid for by Miss Easdale Shaw. The cruets 
were given to that parish by the Woman's Auxiliary.) 

Since Bishop Delaney's death Bishop Cheshire has had charge of 
the service presented to the colored convocation. 

We now present to our Bishop this service to be used for the 
Church for the Deaf in Durham. 

The work is completed and your committee begs to be discharged. 

Laura June King Alston, Chairman. 

INTER-RACIAL COMMITTEE 

The outstanding work of the Inter-racial Committee has been 
Representation on Southern Interracial Commission, the Federal 
Council of Churches, Bishop Tuttle School at Efland, and Colored 
Day Nursery. The Scholarship Fund paid for a student at Bishop 
Tuttle School, the attendance at Inter-church meeting on race re- 
lations, the endorsement of the resolution of that body by the Wom- 
an's Organization and the work done to get the school at Efland 
taken over by the State. 

The efforts of the Committee have been directed to a more efficient 
cooperation between the races, and in doing all possible to help the 
Negroes, to more efficiently help themselves. 

The aims for the next years will be : A Scholarship of $200.00 for 
Bishop Tuttle School, a carrying out of the resolutions of Inter- 
Church Committee and efforts to have the Efland School taken over 
by the State. 

Mes. T. W. Bickett, Chairman. 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY OF THE COLORED CONVOCATION 

A recent survey shows a membership of 235 in the fourteen 
branches in the Colored Convocation, the enrollment ranging from 
2 to 45, and the more recent reports from the branches show them 
to be, on the whole, active. 

We have adopted a number of Diocesan projects in our pledges 
this year. The Student Loan Fund for the Bishop Tuttle School, 
Raleigh being one. 



40 FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL REPORT 

The Box Supply Department is doing nicely. Mrs. Dixon reports 
43 garments on hand and more reported. We are making up our 
second allotment from H. Q. 

The report from the branches show a willingness on the part 
of the women to carry out the plans of the Diocesan officers and 
with the strengthening of the central organization. 

One of the most interesting activities which has begun since our 
last report is the Y. P. C. D. Club which was organized by the young 
people of St. Augustine's Conference last year. These young people 
prepared and presented a reading of "The Book Beloved" in three 
days. The Club has put on a prize pageant contest. 

From some of the branches have come encouraging reports of 
Interracial work. We hope this work will grow. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. M. M. Weston, President. 



CHURCH PERIODICAL, CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club presents the following report for the 
year 1929: 

Current Periodicals sent regularly 42 

Donors of above Periodicals 13 

Old magazines and papers distributed 1,541 

Prayer Books and Hymnals 6 

Tracts and catechisms 3 

Money contributed $15.00 

The above statement is far from complete, since it contains the 
reports of only seven C. P. C. Branches of the Diocese. There are 
thirty-four branches listed. 

The Church Periodical Club is an organization of the Church 
which in this and many other Dioceses works through the Woman's 
Auxiliary. It covers a very broad field, for through the C. P. C. 
literature of every kind is supplied wherever it is needed. Magazines 
are sent each month to missionaries, schools, hospitals, etc. ; Bibles 
and Prayer Books are sent to small churches and mission stations ; 
music is provided for choirs and choruses when requests for this 
are sent in ; and many large libraries in the schools and colleges of 
the mission field and at home have been entirely built up by the 
C. P. C. 

In this Diocese our chief work has been the forwarding of cur- 
rent periodicals each month, and at one time we had an active 
C. P. C. Branch in the majority of our parishes. Owing to the high 
postal rates, however, many of the parishes have abandoned this 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 

work, and while in some cases the C. P. C. Branches have continued 
and are now doing very fine local work, in many instances the 
C. P. C. work has given up altogether. Let me here call particular 
attention to the importance of this local work and urge more of the 
branches to seek out the needs at home and fill them as far as 
possible. Doubtless in every community there are hospitals, schools, 
institutions, prison, and other places where it would be the greatest 
help to have reading matter brought in regularly. And then there 
are always families whose lives would be brightened and helped 
through the C. P. C. 

Now an appeal has come from C. P. C. headquarters for help 
along another line and I hope very much that we can respond. Miss 
Thomas, the Executive Secretary, writes from New York that an 
appeal has come from Morehead City for aid in building up a school 
library which was completely destroyed by fire some time ago. Miss 
Thomas asks if the C. P. C. in this Diocese cannot help them in 
this work, since the general C. P. C. is just now bending its efforts 
toward rebuilding a library in one of our Chuch Schools elsewhere 
and cannot give Morehead all the help they need. We have sent 
letters to the various C. P. C. Branches asking for aid in this work, 
and I take this opportunity of bringing this matter before the 
Auxiliary as a whole. I hope that we may all help to make a fine 
response to this latest appeal from the C. P. C. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Maby M. Hoke, G. P. C. Director. 



PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

Work of the Prayer Partnership Plan is being carried forward 
successfully throughout practically all of the Diocese. 

The missionaries are grateful for the constant prayers, the love 
and interest shown for them through letters, gifts of money, books, 
magazines, etc. 

Last December a program was sent to each District, to be sent 
to all the branches that interest might be aroused in the missionary 
prayer partners. This was very well observed. 

Let us keep continually in our minds and hearts, the sacred duty 
that is ours, to stand by our missionaries, "to unite our work to 
theirs," through prayer — "more things are wrought by prayer than 
this world dreams of." 

May all of us in the Diocese of North Carolina, feel a loving 
personal interest in these missionary prayer partners of ours, who 
daily and hourly bear witness to "the Faith." 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mbs. F. Graham Jaemon, Chairman.

CHURCH ARMY FUND 

At the spring meeting (1929) of the Wake District which was held 
in St. Stephen's Church, Erwin, our Diocesan President, Mrs. Spruill, 
asked if the missionary in charge, the Rev. Mr. Duncan Thomas, 
might be allowed to put before us an opportunity for constructive 
work which confronted him and for which he needed help. This 
was readily accorded ; and, moved by the vision that he presented 
of the need of the mill people of Erwin for just the type of work 
that is done by Church Army folk, and moved also by the mis- 
sionary's own spirit of devotion to the cause, the District undertook 
to provide a Church Army worker for this field for the three summer 
months. Following this action Mrs. Spruill with her characteristic 
vigor and promptness in pushing a good work asked me to do what I 
could to enlist the help of the entire Auxiliary in supporting the 
work during the ensuing year. 

I have come to believe that all that our Auxiliary women need 
is just to be shown an opportunity ! A fund of more than $500 has 
been raised to which some of the smallest branches in the Diocese 
have contributed — and, more than that, their gifts have often been 
accompanied by lovely, enthusiastic notes, telling me how glad they 
were to have a part in this pioneer work. In the name of Mr. 
Thomas I want to thank every branch — the smallest as well as the 
largest — for the help that they have rendered to him in this field 
that was ripe to the harvest, which Mr. Thomas says he would not 
exchange for the finest parish in the Diocese ! 

You all know, I am sure, the character of Church Army work. 
It is essentially pioneer work ; by which I mean getting hold of the 
outsider by carrying the Gospel message to him in the street or in 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 43 

his home, rather than waiting for him to seek it within the doors 
of the church. It is going after the lost sheep rather than ministering 
to the ninety and nine within the fold. It is a process of breaking 
ground which can presently be worked by the Sunday School teacher, 
the Auxiliary leader — the regular church worker in whatever line. 

Certain methods with which we in the Episcopal Church are un- 
familiar have been found by the Church Army to be specially 
adapted to this kind of work. That they have been effectively used 
at Erwin is perhaps best attested by the fact that on March 30 Mr. 
Thomas presented to Bishop Cheshire for the rite of Confirmation 
a class of twenty-one persons, most of them adults. Of this class, 
at least one-third can be directly or indirectly attributed to the help 
of the Church Army. Furthermore Mr. Thomas hopes to have a 
good sized class next fall, which will possibly be even more largely 
drawn from those touched by the Church Army during these past 
months. The March class was the more notable in size when we 
realize that it meant a thirty per cent increase in communicants of 
the parish. 

This seems to me, friends, to be a remarkable record of accom- 
plishment in this brief period of time ; and it certainly bears out 
Captain Mountford's claim for the Church Army that it is not con- 
tented with taking the Gospel to the outsider but also brings the 
outsider into the fold of Christ's Church. 

The ground has been broken. Mr. Thomas is convinced of the value 
of the cottage services. These he will be able to continue himself. 

I am convinced that the Holy Spirit who by means of your interest 
so generously expressed has begun this good work of making His 
saving Gospel known to men and women and children not hitherto 
brought into the fold ; will abundantly bless the devoted labors of the 
missionary in charge as he goes forward under the stimulus that 
the Woman's Auxiliary has given to his work at Erwin. 

Emilie R. Holmes, Chairman. 



PRESIDENTS' CONFERENCE 

The conference of parish presidents, which was held in St. Paul's 
Church, Winston-Salem, and conducted by Mrs. James R. Cain, of 
Columbia, S. C, was divided into two sessions : 

The first session was given to a discussion of the preparation, 
which should be made by the President, to fit herself for the office. 

The second period, to a discussion of the main subject — "More 
effective leadership in the work for the Church's Mission."

"And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me." 
Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved ; through Thy merits and mercies, 
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever 
One God, world without end. Amen. 

Auxiliary Prayer 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thank- 
ful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for 
His dear sake. Amen. 

For A 7 olunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Episcopal Home, instituted in Thy 
name. Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons 
of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties com- 
mitted to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and 
earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their 
minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who 
have contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a 
never-failing succession of benefactors whose names may be per- 
petuated through all generations as a blessed memory, and their good 
deeds be accepted ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that 
it is more blessed to give than it is to receive ; look with favor, we 
beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, especially in this 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the sick and 
homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens with our ready 
gifts and service : through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose flocks 
are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the hope of 
a better country ; bless all who search for Thy sheep in scattered 
places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; Who art with the 
Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen. 

For Religious Education 

O God, the only source of light and truth, help us we beseech Thee, 
to know Thee better day by day. From the pages of Thy written 
word, in the ordered teachings of thy Church, by the example of thy 
faithful servants, in every experience whether of sorrow or joy, let 
us see the light of thy glory in the face of Jesus Christ and give us 
strength to follow in his steps wherever Thou wouldst have us go 
through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Social Service 

Guide us O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, and 
in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, making 
the Kingdoms of this world Thy kingdom as thou wiliest, who dost 
live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and joy of the 
citizens of that holy city. Amen. 

For the Advance Work 

O Thou who didst promise Thy presence and power to those who 
go forth in Thy name; Stir up the loyalty and the love of Thy 
Church to supply the pressing needs of those who, as our repre- 
sentatives, proclaim Thy message of salvation, both at home and 
abroad. Accept our gifts and prosper our undertaking, to the glory 
of Thy name and the blessing of Thy children ; who with the Father 
and the Holy Spirit art worshipped and glorified, now and forever, 
Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the Field, and draw us 
into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 



For Use Before and At the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity 
of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service ; to those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 

workers in Thy service : bless we pray Thee Thy servant, 

and prosper her in the work to which Thou has called her. Grant 
her sufficient wisdom for every task, Thy gracious help in time of 
trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and the power to 
accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name and for Thy glory ; 
through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." Amen. 

Tlranksgivings 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end : We give Thee humble thanks 
for all the great things Thou has done and are doing for the chil- 
dren of men ; for the opening of heathen lands to the light of Thy 
truth ; for making paths into the deep waters and highways in the 
desert ; for knitting nation to nation in the bond of fellowship, and 
for the planting of Thy Church in all the earth. O merciful Father, 
in whom the whole family is named, fill full our hearts with grateful 
love for this Thy goodness, granting grace henceforth to serve Thee 
better and more perfectly to know Thee ; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

The Re-dedication 

Realizing that only through personal dedication to Jesus Christ, our 
Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human endeavors, we re- 
dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ, to making 
the strength of our deeds the measure of our Faith ; to a sincere and 
simple effort in our daily living to follow with humility the example 
of our Saviour.

the following departments or subjects, all under the direct super- 
vision of the Secretary of Social Service: Education, The

Rev. E. L. Haines spoke on the Auxiliary's attitude towards 
the Young People's Service League. He made an appeal for

An invitation to meet in Henderson next year was extended 
the Auxiliary. This invitation was accepted. 

Mrs. J. D. Quern, Chairman of the Courtesy Committee, then 
presented the following report : 

REPORT OF COURTESY COMMITTEE 

We feel honored to have been asked to make this report and 
are grateful for the privilege, even though we feel we can never 
adequately express our full appreciation for all the courtesies 
extended to us during our visit to Wilson. We are surely glad 
we were invited to St. Timothy's. 

It is difficult for us to say what has touched our hearts the 
most — the gracious welcome on our arrival by the rector and 
committee — our charming and hospitable hostesses — the atten- 
tion of the pages — the beautiful flowers — the inspiring music 
of the violinist, the organist and the singing of the choirs, 
for all these — we thank you. 

We also extend our thanks to the hostesses of other denomina- 
tions who have so graciously assisted in our entertainment, for 
the bountiful lunches provided and for the use of the Methodist 
Church. 

We thank the newspaper, the Committee on Arrangements 
and those who have transported us so freely from place to 
place. 

We extend our grateful thanks to our Bishops, who have 
served us in early morning sacrifice, throughout our business 
session to our closing benediction. 

We appreciate the manner in which our President has ex- 
pedited her business and the speakers she had provided for us 
and the spiritual blessings we received ; also for the conscientious 
work of our Secretary; and lest we should omit any one who 
have done so much for our enjoyment — to each and everyone — 
we again say "We thank you." 

Mrs. J. D. Queen, Chairman. 
Mrs. G. K. G-. Henry. 
Mrs. Murray Jones. 
Mrs. C. W. Byrd. 
Mrs. Jacob Binder, Jr. 



22 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 

All business having been transacted and the minutes of the 
meeting read and approved, Bishop Penick installed the newly 
elected Diocesan Officers and Representative on the Diocesan 
Executive Council. His closing message on the Responsibility 
of Leadership was an inspiration not only to the new officers 
but to the entire Convention. This was followed by appropriate 
prayers and by the rededication by all the women of the 
Church. The Benediction was pronounced by Bishop Cheshire. 
Faithfully submitted, 

Ethel S. Philips, Secretary. 

ADDRESS OF THE PRESIDENT 

Dear Friends and Go-Workers: 

Following a custom established for many years, it is now my 
privilege to give you a resume of the activities of the Auxiliary 
for the year that has just passed and to outline the hopes and 
plans for the future. Before attempting this, however, may I 
convey to you my appreciation for the manner in which you 
have accepted me and my leadership ? Your interest, your 
loyalty, your generosity and your understanding have always 
been apparent. You have attempted to carry out my suggestions 
far beyond my hopes and you have overlooked my failures and 
faults in a loving and charitable manner. If I have succeeded, 
it is you who have made it possible. 

This office in which you have placed me is not always an easy 
one, but it is always interesting and worthwhile. I confess to 
an ignorance in meeting many problems that is appalling. I am 
overwhelmed often by the responsibility entailed, but I rejoice 
in the opportunities and contacts. I welcome you this morning 
with thankfulness and pleasure. May we always maintain a 
spirit of comradeship, sharing our talents each with the other 
to the best of our ability. Together let us think things out. 

To the Diocesan Officers, District Chairmen and Committee 
Chairmen, I extend grateful thanks for their untiring efforts, 
faithfulness and ability. To my predecessors in office belong the 
larger share of my plans and endeavors. The shadow of their 
wise administrations hovers over me like a guardian angel. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 23 

In this brief summary of the year's work, District Meetings 
and reports furnishing a significant gauge, I can cheerfully 
record a lively interest in many phases of the Church's work, 
a fine spirit of loyalty and an encouraging list of work accom- 
plished. 

Your Supply Secretary has worked without ceasing. On 
account of unusual economic conditions, the demands upon her 
resources are greater than ever before. Her reports show greater 
response. We recognize this department both as a missionary 
and educational force. 

Your Educational Secretary has shown that education is not 
the prerogative of a few to be undertaken at stated times; 
she has proven it a necessity, indulged in by all at all times. 
She has lifted it from the realm of duty to that of privilege. 

Your Social Service Secretary, with a vision of what this 
work truly is, has made it possible for us to realize to a greater 
degree our duty to our neighbor. 

Your U. T. O. Custodian still leads the Fourth Province. 
Though the offering is not as large as hitherto, the spirit that 
prompts the gifts makes up for this lack. 

Your Treasurer reports promptness and accuracy on the part 
of many; the receipts are greater than ever before. 

Several branches show an increase in membership; the at- 
tendance at Summer Conferences has grown tremendously. The 
meetings of the Executive Board and of the Districts reflect an 
interest and deep concern for the welfare of the Diocese. There 
have been four volunteers for the Mission Eield; work among 
the Isolated has been inaugurated; the Church Periodical Club 
is gaining renewed vigor; a branch of the Auxiliary has been 
started at St. Ignatius, Old Sparta, a mission of Calvary 
Church, Tarboro. Your pledge of $3,000 to the Diocese for the 
Advance Work Program is completed. 

What do these outward and visible signs portray? An in- 
ward and spiritual grace, I trust, but a note of warning must 
be sounded. Let us not deceive ourselves. As worthy as these 
may be, unless we did them from the highest motives, our deeds 
and gifts may become as sounding brass and tinkling cymbals. 
May we be true to the best ideals and traditions of the 
Auxiliary. 



24 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 

As your President, I have held two Executive Board Meetings, 
attended seven District Meetings, the Provincial Synod at Jack- 
son, Miss., five meetings of the Executive Council of the Diocese 
and several Parish Meetings. In a monthly letter to each 
branch, and also through the Auxiliary page of the Carolina 
Churchman, I have endeavored to direct your attention to 
matters pertaining not only to the Diocese but to the Church at 
large. I have urged the necessity of subscribing to and reading 
the Spirit of Missions and the Diocesan paper. I recommend 
the Church Missions House as an unfailing source of help on 
all matters. 

Realizing that we cannot share with others what we do not 
possess ourselves, I have ventured suggestions to deepen our 
spiritual life, individually and as an organization. May we 
have a rule of life that includes time for prayer, study and 
meditation. May our organization be strengthened and de- 
veloped through Corporate Communions, Days of Intercession 
and Quiet Days. 

If I have caused you to work, it is good; if I have inspired 
you to think, it is better; if I have led you to pray, that is 
best. 

The Executive Board will present two resolutions to you to- 
day ; I commend them as worthy of your consideration : first, 
the possibility of undertaking Summer Volunteer Work ; second, 
the furnishing of a private room in St. Luke's Hospital, Porto 
Rico, in memory of Catherine Bourne, a missionary from this 
Diocese who lost her life while teaching there. Your Board 
has passed the following resolutions : 

"Be it Resolved, That the offerings from the Intercessory 
Day, Feast of the Annunciation, March 25, be made adequate 
for a full scholarship of $200 to the school at Valle Crucis, to 
be known as the Bishop Cheshire Scholarship." 

"Be it Resolved, That the Intercessory Day observed on the 
Feast of the Transfiguration, August 6th, be changed to St. 
Michael and All Angels, September 29." 

This change was deemed necessary on account of summer 
vacations. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 25 

The Constitution demands that today we elect three Diocesan 
Officers: Treasurer, Educational Secretary and Social Service 
Secretary; a Representative on the Diocesan Council and five 
delegates to the Triennial at Denver. I hope you have given 
this prayer and thought. The essential requisites of leadership 
are a desire for service, sympathetic understanding of people 
and a willingness to give time for preparation. I cannot believe 
these qualities are lacking in any of you. 

The Triennial meeting of the Auxiliary will be held in Den- 
ver, Colorado, September 16-30. Recognizing that this event 
is of tremendous importance, we should approach it intelligently 
and with a keen sense of our own responsibility. Five subjects 
are to be presented and discussed : family, property, inter-racial 
contacts, international relations and religious thinking today. 
Two leaflets have been prepared to assist you in preparation 
for these days in Denver; one I enclosed in my April letter, 
both may be secured here today or from the Church Missions 
House. I remind you again that the United Thank Offering 
will be presented on September 17th. 

Nineteen hundred and thirty has passed into history; the 
record of it, if not exceptional, is one of steady progress; and 
now, what of the future? Our task is to determine how to go 
forward even more effectively. 

As a start I recommend that, understanding the real status 
of the Auxiliary of today — Auxiliary to all Departments of the 
National Council — we endeavor to bring into its fold every 
woman in the Parish, particularly the younger women. If we 
are to keep faith with the coming generation, we must have a 
lively interest in the Y. P. S. L. and the Church School. Keep 
the mission of the Church foremost in your mind and see that 
your Parish pays its quota — we pledged to do this at New 
Orleans, but how many of us have made any real effort? Help 
the Auxiliary to see that religious education underlies all the 
work of the Church; to know that we may do social service 
work because we are Auxiliary to the National Council, we 
must do it for the sake of the Church's mission. Accept leader- 
ship — do not expect from others what you will not do yourself. 
Make your gifts from a love and knowledge of the needs and

as God has prospered you. Failures without usually indicate 
failures within; therefore preparation of self is a primary 
essential. 

Have I suggested too difficult a program? I think not. It 
has been accomplished by others. Let us remember that our 
strength alone is not sufficient. To enable us to make the 
venture successful, vision and faith must precede us and courage 
and diligence must accompany us; methods and means will 
follow. 

"May we go forth in love that shall not cease 
To work and pray that all may know thy peace." 

Faithfully yours, 

Rena H. Clakk. 

REPORT OF SECRETARY 

Since the Annual Meeting of 1930, the Secretary has mailed notices 
to all members of the Executive Committee concerning meetings 
for September and March. A copy of the minutes of these meetings 
was mailed to each member of the Board. 

Stationery was mailed to all Diocesan Officers. At the request of 
Mrs. Cain prayers for the preparation of the Synod were sent out. 
Letters from the President were mailed each month to all Branches, 
Diocesan Officers and District Chairmen. 

In January Report Blanks and Pledge Lists were sent to all 
Branches. Questionnaires concerning Social Service Work in tho 
Diocese were mailed to each Branch at the request of the Chairman 
of this department in the Province. Return post cards were sent 
to the delegates for the Convention. Programs for the Annual Meet- 
ing were mailed to all Diocesan Officers, District Chairmen, Branch 
Presidents, Committee Chairmen and Speakers. Prayer leaflets were 
sent to be used in preparation for the Triennial. 

More than 1,981 of the above communications have been sent out 
in the past year. In addition to these numerous personal letters 
were written. 

The work of the Auxiliary is increasing all the time but with these 
constant communications it has been possible to keep in close touch 
with every Branch and Department. 

The Secretary has endeavored to carry out all requests from the 
President and to perform promptly all duties required of her. 

In closing let me thank you for the honor and pleasure of serving 
you as Secretary for the past year. 

Ethel S. Philips, Secretary.

Your Supply Secretary is gratified with the work accomplished by 
the various branches. There is an increase of thirteen since my last 
report. 

Possibly there are some who do not understand how the assign- 
ments of boxes is made each year. In August Mrs. T. K. Wade, 
our National Supply Secretary sends each Diocese its allotment and 
states where it is to be forwarded. It is impossible for the National 
office to personally check all the requests so they must take the 
attitude that the Bishop of the Diocese or District knows where the 
need is and only asks us to send help where he feels that help 
is needed. 

There are two reasons why the Dioceses and Districts are asked 
so often to send to far distant points. In the first place our Church 
is extremely weak west of the Mississippi, consequently much the 
greater portion of our gifts are sent by the Eastern Dioceses. 
Secondly, one of the most valuable assets of the Supply Department 
is the knowledge that the women gain about all the mission fields 
when sewing for the department. Therefore the assignments are 
purposely varied each year. 

I wish to express my appreciation to all branches for their loyalty 
and to thank them for the splendid spirit of cooperation. 

MossrE Long Hartzell, Secretary. 



28 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 

We have much to be grateful for this year that we can report a 
great improvement in branches reporting, there being an increase of 
almost double the number reporting last year, and even though in 
many instances branch secretaries have no record of all they have 
expended there is a gain of $1,300.00 in amounts spent locally for 
Social Service, and $2,137.92 is reported as having been spent to 
clothe children at Thompson Orphanage as against $1,127.21 last 
year, a gain of more than a thousand dollars. In addition to this 
our women have given as never before of their time in making 
garments for destitute families, giving supplementary feedings to 
undernourished school children and relieving the unprecedented de- 
mands for food and the necessities of life. The work being done by 
our women is splendid but there is a woeful lack of study of Social 
Service. Dean Lathrop gave us as our Aim — "To increase the Social 
Vision of the Parish" and to do this we must get more study of 
Social Service into our branch programs. Can we not as a tribute to 
Dean Lathrop make an earnest effort to increase our vision this 
year by well arranged study programs and by individual reading. 

There are eight children at the Thompson Orphanage not being 
clothed by the Branches, representing five new children and three 
whose Auxiliaries have had to give them up. 

There are two Clinics being conducted in Parish Houses in our 
Diocese and at Cooleemee, where the nurse's salary is guaranteed 
by friends of the work, locally, 981 persons went to the clinic, 998 
visits were made by the nurse and 2,227 first aid treatments were 
given. 11 children had tonsils removed and three were taken to 
the State Sanatorium. Some of the Branches have contributed to 
this clinic, which is an adventure in faith. 
Faithfully yours, 

Mrs. G. B. Lewis, Secretary. 



REPORT OF DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY, 1930 

Almost all branches have done some study or regular reading 
during the year. 

About half have taken up the special mission study suggested. 
Some branches have done this and much more. 

The branches that do best work are not always the largest branches 
in the big parishes. 

In a large parish where there are several groups the Educational 
Secretary has a training class for the leaders of the different groups. 

This plan is recommended. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 29 

Forty-nine branches sent no delegates to summer conferences. 

From forty-six branches no one attended an educational institute. 

Forty-eight Auxiliary members attended summer conferences. 

One hundred and ninety-nine attended the two "Diocesan Educa- 
tional Institutes" in Rocky Mount and Salisbury. 

Some leaders in each district had a part in conducting these 
institutes. 

Forty branches reported "Discussion Groups." 

Fifteen others reported "Program Meetings." 

Sixteen branches reported subscribers to the monthly "Prayer 
Leaflet" (Field Department, 50 cents). 

Where the work is presented not only as an interesting study, but 
also as a means of spiritual growth, there the classes have a most 
successful appeal. 

Spiritual growth cannot be reported, but I feel there is a growing 
sense of responsibility among the Educational Secretaries and others 
towards the Educational Work of the Church. 

I have worked with you with joy and I thank you for your stimu- 
lating and encouraging cooperation. 

"Let the same mind be in you as was also in Christ Jesus." 

If we are to share His mind we must think His thoughts. How 
else than by training our minds by prayer and study? 

Mrs. Warren W. Way, Educational Secretary. 

REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 
For the Year 1930 

1929 Spring Offering received from Mrs. W. D. Burwell $ 3,300.00 

1929 Fall Offering (previously reported) 3,154.50 

1930 Spring Offering (including Convention and Special 

Offering) 3,062.77 

1930 Fall Offering 2,907.98 

Total Interest 547.44 

Total Offering, December 31, 1930 $12,972.69 

During the year 1930, three branches have dropped from our roll, 
two branches have combined with a third in presenting their United 
Thank Offering, and four new branches have been added to our 
ranks. A good many individuals who have no branch affiliation 
give to the United Thank Offering. 

In the Diocese of North Carolina there are seven U. T. O. workers, 
as follows : 

Charlotte, Good Samaritan Hospital — Miss Marion Bodey. 

Raleigh, St. Augustine's College — Miss Laura E. Beard. 



30 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Raleigh, St. Augustine's College — Miss Mary L. Gates. 

Raleigh, St. Agnes Hospital — Mrs. Frances E. Worrall. 

Raleigh, Bishop Tuttle Memorial School — Miss Bertha Richards. 

Raleigh, Bishop Tuttle Memorial School — Sister Anna Mary. 

Greensboro, N. C. C. W— Mrs. Frank N. Challen. 

We claim also two United Thank Offering missionaries working in 
other fields : 

Miss Bessie Blacknall, St. Mark's Mission, Nenana, Alaska. 

Miss Mary A. Ramseur, Great Falls, S. C. 

I have found it expedient to let the Custodian of each District 
manage the affairs of her own District as she thinks best. She re- 
ceives the offerings from the branches within her jurisdiction and 
sends them to the Diocesan United Thank Offering Treasurer ; who 
in turn deposits the offering semi-annually with the Treasurer of 
the National Council. I should like to express my appreciation of 
the splendid cooperation the District Custodians have given me in 
this matter. 

It is important that every branch Treasurer should be well in- 
formed on the United Thank Offering. Within the pages of the fol- 
lowing leaflets can be found all details of the founding, purpose, prog- 
ress, present status and future plans of the United Thank Offering. 

Suggestions to the United Thank Offering Treasurers, 3 cents. 

U. T. O. Resolution and Prayer Card, 1 cent ; 60 cents per 100. 

Twenty United Thank Offering Questions Answered, 2 cents ; $1.00 
per 100. 

1889-1931. A Record and a Hope, 3 cents ; $2.00 per 100. 

As If We Didn't Know, 2 cents ; $1.50 per 100. 

A United Thank Offering Play, 10 cents ; 50 cents for 10. 

U. T. O. Catechism, 2 cents ; $1.50 per 100. 

A Woman's Imagination, 2 cents ; $1.50 per 100. 

The Gift of God, 2 cents ; $1.50 per 100. 

These leaflets and the blue boxes are obtainable through your 
Diocesan Treasurer. 

North Carolina has done well, but we can do better. Let us push 
on to our goal — a Blue Box in the hands of every woman in the 
Church, and a great THANK offering of service and of gifts. 

Mrs. Alfred S. Lawrence, 
Treasurer, United, Thank Offering.

From January 1, 1930, to January 1, 1931 

To the President and Executive Committee of the Woman's Auxiliary

Pursuant to the request of your Treasurer, I have audited the 
records of receipts and disbursements for the period beginning Janu- 
ary 1, 1930, and ending January 1, 1931. During this period the ac- 
count was kept by Miss Nan G. Clark, Tarboro, North Carolina. I 
have carefully gone over all records of receipts and all vouchers 
showing disbursements and find them in balance. The balance of 
$264.72 is deposited in the North Carolina Bank & Trust Company, 
Tarboro, North Carolina. 

K. D. Morgan, Auditor.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 35 



REPORTS OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

I am glad to report sixteen active Branches assuming and carry- 
ing on the responsibilities of the Ave fields of service. 

One new Branch has been organized — St. Ignatius, Old Sparta, 
Edgecombe County, a rural Branch with great opportunities for 
service. 

Mrs. Bourne has aroused much interest in Religious Education. 
Every Branch has done some kind of work in this department, and 
a large majority have conducted well attended study classes. 

Perhaps our most outstanding work for 1930 has been Social 
Service. Of course the economic conditions of the country created 
the demand which was met by a willing and ready response. 

Our district lies in the heart of the agricultural section of North 
Carolina, and as President of the Council of Federated Farm Women 
of Nash County, I have had an opportunity to observe the farm 
women of our District. I am happy to report that the women of our 
rural and small town Branches are interested in the Federated 
Councils of Farm Women, which are a vital factor in their social 
and spiritual life. 

In December, Mrs. Simms, our U. T. O. Custodian, and I spent 
two very pleasant days visiting the Branches and many homes of 
our members in Northampton County. Some "magnificent distances," 
but a Loyal band of Auxiliary women. 

We have held two well attended and enthusiastic district meet- 
ings — Wilson in the spring and Scotland Neck in the fall. 

No one ever does her very best, but as a whole, I believe the women 
of this district have met their obligations and rendered their service 
in the light of their ability and means. 

Rosa W. Bulluck, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

Both spring and fall meetings of the District of Granville were 
well attended and much interest shown. 

The spring meeting was held at Holy Innocents, Henderson, N. C. 
Bishop Hulse of Cuba spoke on his many problems of work. Mr. 
Haines gave an account of the "Forward Movement." 

The fall meeting was held at Saint Paul's Church, Louisburg, 
N. C. Mrs. Swift of Greensboro spoke on "The Legislation for 
Child Labor," and Mr. N. C. Duncan from Cooleemee made a plea 
for his mission work. 

All the Branches have done good work in Evangelism, Education, 
Social Service, Box Work and Prayer. 

Mrs. Maurice Clifton, Chairman. 



36 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 



DISTRICT OF WAKE 

The Wake District of the Woman's Auxiliary held their first meet- 
ing at St. John's Chapel, near Wake Forest, on May 8, 1930. 

Seventy-nine members reported present from the branches from 
Christ Church, Good Shepherd Church and St. Mary's, Raleigh ; St. 
Paul's, Smithfield and St. John's, Wake Forest. 

Holy Communion was celebrated by Bishop Cheshire, asisted by 
Bishop Hulse of Cuba and Rev. Jas. R. Miller of Louisburg. 

Greetings were extended by Mrs. Walter Grimes, response being 
made by Miss Sally Dortch. 

Interesting talks were made by Bishop Hulse of Cuba and Mrs. 
T. E. Bost, Commissioner of Public Welfare. 

Mrs. J. S. Holmes reported on the annual meeting in Winston- 
Salem, and Miss Rena Clark spoke briefly on the Advance Work 
of the Church. 

The second meeting was held at St. Gabriel's Chapel, Selma on 
October 28, 1930, seventy-five members being present. Rev. Harvey 
Cox of St. Saviour's, Raleigh, celebrated the Holy Communion. 

Greetings were extended by Mrs. Ashcraft of the Selma Branch, 
to which response was made by Mrs. Bryson of the St. Saviour's 
Chapel. 

Acting Chairman, Mrs. W. W. Way, introduced the speaker, Rev. 
Mr. Haines, Executive Secretary, who spoke on the Advance Work 
of the Church. 

Following the reports of the various Chairmen, a most interesting 
pageant of life in India was presented by the Selma Branch, which 
aroused so much interest that it has been repeated several times in 
Raleigh by other Church organizations, and has caused renewed 
interest in the study of that country. 

Miss Nan Clark, Diocesan Treasurer, gave a most vivid descrip- 
tion of her year's travel in India. 

A number of visits have been made during the year to the isolated 
members of the Auxiliary, and we have endeavored to arouse new 
interest in the work among the less active branches. 

Sarah Cheshire, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

Since the last annual meeting, the District of Orange has held 
one meeting at St. Joseph's, Durham, in October, which was well 
attended. Rev. E. L. Haines explained fully the Church's Program 
and Advance Work. Dr. A. S. Pearce, of the Graduate Faculty of 
Duke University, gave a very instructive talk on India, describing 
religious, political and social conditions. Miss Emma Twiggs of 
the Girl's Friendly Society, told of her work. The Y. P. S. L. of St. 
Andrew's Church, Durham, gave a very interesting U. T. O. Pageant. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 37 

This District has nine branches. Eight of the branches observed 
one or more of the Intercessory Days and eight conducted educational 
classes. St. Philips, Durham, held an all day Mission Study. About 
sixty people attended. 

All the branches responded to the Supply Department in money, 
sewing and boxes and are doing splendid work in many phases of 
Social Service. One small branch contributed $52.00 towards ex- 
penses of a child at Sanatorium besides working very hard raising 
money for their church building. 

The teas given at the Parish House by the branch of the Chapel 
of the Cross are well attended and greatly appreciated by the 
University students. 

Each branch is doing very conscientious work and their yearly 
reports were very gratifying. 

Martha F. Shannonhotjse, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

Both spring and fall meetings of the District of Guilford were 
largely attended, and much interest was manifested. 

Under the leadership of its splendid secretaries every department 
has gone forward. The Educational Secretary placed especial empha- 
sis on the study classes, pointing out that the Auxiliary is an educa- 
tional force in the church and that through discussion groups and 
programs interest in the church is increased. 

Quite a little sum was realized from the sale of linens from Porto 
Rico. These linens, which were sent to Mrs. Easley, came from the 
school in which Miss Mildred Hayes teaches. We regret very much 
giving up Miss Hayes as Prayer Partner. 

The spring meeting was held at St. Mary's House N. C. C. W., 
Greensboro. At this meeting an item of outstanding interest was the 
offering of life by Miss Wilma Biggs. Miss Biggs was graduated 
from N. C. C. W. and was also a teacher in St. Andrews Church 
School. 

The fall meeting was also held in Greensboro with the Rev. N. C. 
Duncan of Cooleemee, Dr. Opie of Burlington, Rev. Robt. E. Lewis, 
of Washington, and Dr. Lula Disosway, of China, as speakers. 
Dr. Disosway gave her hearers a very realistic picture of the busy 
life which a medical missionary leads, serving often both day and 
night but being rewarded by the gratitude of those who are healed. 

All the branches reported their quotas paid and all departments 
functioning. 

The Woman's Auxiliary in this District is endeavoring to furnish 
the means through which the women of the church may serve the 
church in all its general work, and is seeking to help every church 
woman realize the privilege of such service. 

Mrs. C. E. Anderson, Chairman. 



38 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 



DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

Nineteen hundred and thirty has been a very busy year in the 
Forsyth-Rowan District and all departments of the work have been 
faithfully carried on. 

Christian Social Service has been the keynote of the year and 
has covered a wide field. I can only mention a few of them. 

Hot luncheons for undernourished children as well as hot dinners 
for an old person. 

One branch had a Christmas tree for under-privileged children. 
The members of the Church School brought the toys. Four additions 
to the Church School were directly traceable to this friendliness. 

One branch held prayer service in a mill village, and many other 
forms of this work was done. 

Two well attended District meetings were held last year. One a 
business meeting at Salisbury in the spring and the other an in- 
spirational one at Advance in the fall. 

Miss Clark, our President, was with us in the fall and filled us 
with zeal and a desire to press onward. 

We find great enthusiasm always in the care of the Thompson 
Orphanage children. 

I regret to report that the branch at Spencer has been disbanded. 

Mrs. John L. Gilmer, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The spring meeting for the District of Mecklenburg, was held at 
St. Paul's Church, Monroe, North Carolina in May. 

Mr. Rufus Morgan, gave a most helpful and instructive talk on 
our "Summer Conferences." The result was, sixty ladies attended the 
conferences at Kanuga and the influence of Kanuga is still being 
felt. 

Mrs. Lewis, our Diocesan Social Service Secretary, spoke of her 
work, and then introduced Mr. John Small of Charlotte, who gave 
us an able talk on "The Divorce Evils." 

Mrs. Baxter Moore, gave an interesting and charming report of 
the annual meeting, held at Winston-Salem. 

The fall meeting was held at St. Peter's Church, Charlotte. 

Mrs. Bulus Swift, was introduced by Mrs. G. B. Lewis, who gave 
us a splendid talk on "The Working Child in North Carolina." 

Rev. Elwood L. Haines, spoke on "The Forward Movement" and 
Bishop Penick, told of the "Advance Work." 

Both meetings were well attended. 

Mrs. J. C. Purnell, Chairman. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 39 



DISTRICT OP RICHMOND 

The District of Richmond comprises four branches of the Woman's 
Auxiliary, one in Hamlet, one in Rockingham and two in Wadesboro. 
Southern Pines, though not having an organized branch, always sends 
delegates from their Guild with a splendid report, especially of Social 
Service work. 

At the spring meeting in Hamlet reports were given of work done 
since the spring of 1929. Three branches had studied "Roads to the 
City of God" and two had also studied "Christ in the Common 
Ways of Life." All branches had shown special interest in local 
Social Service work. The Rockingham branch does their splendid 
Social Service work through the Daughters of the King. Mrs. G. B. 
Lewis, Diocesan Social Service Secretary emphasized the responsi- 
bility of Christian homes in the fight against divorce and crime. Mr. 
Rufus A. Morgan made a splendid talk on Kanuga and explained the 
benefit to be gained in all phases of Church work from the Summer 
Conferences. 

The fall meeting in Rockingham was the best attended ever held. 
The District Secretaries gave outlines of the work for 1931. We were 
fortunate in our splendid list of speakers. Miss Virginia Cone, Dis- 
trict Prayer Partner, gave an interesting talk on her work at St. 
Andrew's Priory in Honolulu. Mrs. Way, Diocesan Educational 
Secretary, made a splendid appeal for Religious Education and 
aroused interest in India, the new mission study book. Mr. Gribben, 
Diocesan Chairman of Advance Work forcefully presented the Church 
Program and Advance work. Mrs. Kate S. Bennett told graphically 
and with deep spiritual insight, the story of our Lord, as presented 
by the Peasants at Oberammergau in the Passion Play, which she 
had the privilege of seeing during the Summer. Mrs. Hartzell, 
Diocesan Supply Secretary, told of the splendid work of her depart- 
ment. Everyone felt it a great privilege to hear Miss Rena Clark, 
Diocesan President, present the work of the Woman's Auxiliary in 
all its departments in such a way as to appeal to every member 
to give her talents, whether one or many, to this work. 

All branches in the District have paid their 1930 pledges. The 
U. T. O. for the year was ($194.91). Ten dollars was given to the 
Central Fund and ten dollars to Mrs. Challen for her worth-while 
work with Episcopal girls at N. C. C. W. 

The new plan of having an outside organization furnish an in- 
expensive lunch was found most helpful, as all members of the enter- 
taining branch could be present through the entire meeting. 

Mes. K. M. Hakdison, Chairman. 



40 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL REPORT 



COMMITTEE REPORTS 



RECRUITING SECRETARY 

It is a source of gratification to the Recruiting Department that 
during the past year there has been a general awakening in the in- 
terest taken in our Summer Conferences by the young people of our 
Diocese as well as the adults. Every District sent delegates, ex- 
penses of some being paid by the District, a great number paying 
their own expenses, the majority of these going to Lake Kanuga. 
The District of Mecklenburg sent 68 delegates, 35 of them paying 
their own expenses. The next largest number went from the Forsyth- 
Rowan District. We believe that the contact with the speakers at 
this Conference does more than anything else to inspire interest in 
Mission Work and the offering of Life. Questionnaires sent to each 
District have brought forth very good response, and we believe more 
work is being done by the Branches in this line of Church work than 
ever before. Miss Mary Hairston of St. Luke's, Spray, sailed from 
Vancouver for the Philippine Islands on September 4th, 1930. Her 
address is No. 567 Calle Isaac, Peral, Manilla, P. I. Miss Wilma 
Biggs of Rockingham and Miss Jean Hewett of Rosemary, N. C, 
left on August 29th, 1930, for All Saints School, Guantanamo, Cuba. 
We want to remember these in our prayers together with our other 
missionaries. Also Miss Brightsie Savage who has gone to Bear 
Mountain Mission, Amherst, Va. 

In addition to those reported last year, we have five young men 
from the diocese, who are candidates for the ministry. Andrew 
Dallman Milstead is at the Virginia Seminary. Benjamin Thorpe 
Brodie and Milton Moran Weston, Jr. (Colored), are at the General 
Theological Seminary, New York. Loys Vernon is at the University 
of North Carolina, and Odell Harris (Colored) is at Bishop Payne 
Divinity School, Petersburg, Va. 

The Chairman of this Department in her communications with the 
Secretaries of the Parish Branches has urged the value of individual 
responsibility as the keynote of the work in this field and requested 
each Secretary to see that every woman in the parish is a member 
of the Woman's Auxiliary, every child in the Church School and 
a Church Paper in every home. 'Tis only by educating our young 
people to a knowledge and love of Missions that we can hope for an 
Offering of Life. 

May we pray daily that this will be one of the most valuable 
phases of Auxiliary work. 

Camille Holt Hunt, Chairman. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 



PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

The Prayer Partnership Plan reports from the eight Districts of 
our Diocese are good. 

The letters from our missionaries show appreciation for the 
prayers and interest we have given them, and for everything we 
have done for them. 

In a recent letter from Miss Groff, in China, to one of the prayer 
partners for the District of Forsyth-Rowan, she says : "We mission- 
aries appreciate our contact with the Church at home through the 
Prayer Partnership. It is good to have interest and help from those 
whom we represent. You must sometimes feel that your efforts go 
off into space, but they don't." 

Miss Groff and Miss Disbrow will both be in America this year. 
I hope, before they leave this country, that our Diocese may have 
the pleasure of seeing them and hearing them tell about their 
work. 

Let us not flag in our efforts to support all of our missionary 
prayer partners, who represent One whose name is written on their 
foreheads. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sally Long Jabman, Chairman. 

WORK WITH THE ISOLATED 

Bishop Darst, speaking to the Auxiliary at Wilson, challenged our 
attention by the question: Why the Church? 

Many times during the past year I have asked : Why a Chairman 
for Work with the Isolated? 

If I have found the answer, it is that we are placing renewed 
emphasis upon our duty to those who are of our own "household 
of the Faith." Without ceasing to go to those who are "afar off," 
we are insisting that our missionary journey begin at our own 
doors. 

Therefore your Chairman's voice is yours, "crying in the wilder- 
ness" ; her ministrations are from your arms stretched out to com- 
fort and to cheer. 

Facing the magnitude of the tasks, realizing the possibilities and 
responsibilities, I am appalled but not dismayed. 

The National Council defines the Isolated as those who can attend 
Church Services not oftener than once a month. This classification 
falls into groups of those: (1) Shut off by distance; (2) Shut in by 
sickness or misfortune; (3) Shut out by penal institutions. In our 
Diocese, good roads and motor cars have, to a great extent, removed 
the obstacle of distance from parish centers. 



42 FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL, REPORT 

Miss Eastwood of the National Council says : "The ideal condition 
will be reached when each parish and mission takes its own re- 
sponsibility," and as Bishop Johnson of Colorado expresses it, "a 
parish ceases to be a point and becomes an area." 

Looking to that end, it is earnestly desired that each parish will 
appoint a Secretary for work with the Isolated who will cooperate 
with the Diocesan Chairman in locating, ministering to and enrolling 
our Isolated families and individuals. This is necessary that we 
may avoid duplications or conflicts concerning responsibilities. 

With two of the groups mentioned I am making contacts by per- 
sonal visits, letters or cards, by distributing Church literature and in 
some cases providing clothing. With the third group — those in penal 
institutions, I have not yet established relations. 

One constructive thing accomplished is in placing a young girl in 
the school at Valle Crucis, where she is making an excellent record. 
This was made possible by the cooperation and generosity of Rev. 
Mr. Kent, Rev. Mr. Barton of Ohio, Mrs. Harold Dwelle of Charlotte, 
Dr. F. Hurst Maier and Mrs. Miller of Philadelphia. If this scholar- 
ship is to be continued for another year, and I sincerely hope it may 
be, it will be necessary for the Diocese to assume some part of the 
expense, either through the parishes or as individuals. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mary Settle Sharpe, Chairman. 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY OF THE COLORED CONVOCATION 

Madam President and Members of the Auxiliary : 

This is my third annual message to you as President of the 
branches of the Colored Convocation and I am glad to say that, 
despite the general economic depression, our branches as a whole are 
holding their own. However we have one urgent need, a field worker. 

We have received many encouraging reports from some of the 
branches and these reports show a willingness to cooperate with the 
Executive Committee. 

We are taking a new step this year and we hope that our meeting 
in Henderson will be a success. Our meetings have been so cramped 
because they have been held at the same time that the Convocation 
or the Conference was held. So we are holding our meetings 
separately this year. 

We have now fifteen branches. Some of them are in places where 
there is neither a priest, deacon, nor catechist. This is one instance 
where you can probably help us. 

I am sorry to have nothing to report on the Interracial work. 
This is a good phase of the work and ought not to be neglected. 

We hope to maintain our former record at the triennium this year 
and hope to have at least two delegates. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 43 

Our Box Work has increased and we hope to do better next year 
in every department. I have asked from H. Q. that a complete unit 
of the Woman's Auxiliary be organized at St. Augustine's Conference 
and I am writing every branch urging them to send a woman to 
enroll in this class. 

We think that our cooperating with you and you with us is going 
to be a great benefit to the Auxiliary and as I said at your meeting 
in Wilson that "not understanding" as much as "misunderstanding" 
often keeps us from standing at all. Our branches would gain great 
inspiration by attending your district meetings, especially the branch 
in the town where you meet. 

Thanking you for the courtesy extended in including our message in 
your yearly report and hoping for a better and greater Auxiliary. 

Respectfully, 

(Mrs.) M. M. Weston, President. 

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

As Director of the C. P. C. for the Diocese of North Carolina, 
I want to tell you of a few ways in which all may have a part in 
this splendid work. 

Its purpose is, as far as possible, to put into the hands of the poor 
and needy, good reading material. Many of the branches subscribe 
to magazines and have these sent through the regular channels of 
distribution of the publishers, in this way securing the low postal 
rates. High postal rates make it impossible to send used magazines 
through the mails : however, a very fine work and one much appre- 
ciated may be accomplished by personal collection and distribution 
of such periodicals in the wards of our hospitals and charitable 
Institutions in the immediate vicinity of each Parish. 

The following is the report for our Diocese for the year 1930 : 

Current Periodicals sent regularly 38 

Donors of above Periodicals 5 

Old magazines distributed 2,815 

Money contributed to Morehead City $10.00 

This report is far from complete. I am asking all branches to try 
and keep a closer check on all magazines distributed, I only wish 
the number. Please send the names of new magazines and to whom 
they are sent, so that I can advise the New York office. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. W. C. Hinson, Director.
